Introduction

Introduction In science our task is to gather information about how people sort out their rubbish in my area. I should also find out the reasons why people recycle their rubbish and why other do not.

How often do you recycle? In this chart you can see that the people that I asked don't really recycle a lot, only one person recycle every signal day. Five people recycle once a week, eight people recycle once a mother and the other eight also recycle once a year. This means more action needs to be made to stop global warming. Do you have a recycling bin near your house? As you can see that most of the people I asked, have a recycling bin near their house, but yet a lot of them don't or not recycle a lot. I personally think that most of them are lazy. If yes how far is the recycle bin way from your house? As you can see that most of the people that I asked live 5min away from a recycling bin and only one person live more than 20mins from a recycling bin. ...read more.

Conclusion

This help decrease deforestation and carbon would be cleared in the air and stop the ozone layer from destroying. Burning carbon is the main cause of global warming, but yet they decide not to recycle. To stop global warming people need to recycle more and also safe energy. I.e. switching off lights when it's not needed, turn off standby off (television). Also I think that people are aware of recycling and should be advised even more. Doing this questionnaire show me, that there are recycling bins out there and people are allow recycle. Most people are lazy and not bothered to sort out their rubbish and recycle it. Most of the people live 5mins away from a recycling bin but yet only one person recycles every day. What does that show you? Is recycling a good thing or a bad thing?
