Publisher Description

When we no longer need or want something, we throw it away. It becomes waste, or rubbish. But, what happens when we do throw something away? Where does it go? Is it recycled? Will it decompose naturally? Unfortunately, most of our waste is simply sent to a landfill, or incinerated ñ both of which have serious environmental consequences. There are, however, alternative methods of waste disposal, as well as steps that can be taken to prevent waste production. This book explores the issues surrounding waste, from both UK and global perspectives. The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research. Content is accessible and engaging, tailored primarily towards the 14 to 18 age group.†
