Which is better, recycling or reusing?

Recently did I learn that there is a big difference between reusing and recycling. Though it's kinda late (considering that I am already a college student), I'm glad I did.

I took an environmental engineering course last semester and it really helped me a lot in realizing that as an engineering student I can be of great help with regard to promoting environmental issues. Actually it's not that I entirely did not know the difference between recycling and reusing, but I must admit that after taking the course, it was sort of embarrassing to myself that there are lot of misconceptions (which I am believing) about the two that must be corrected.

Anyway, I will not be posting my lectures on that course. But for sure, this post will have a follow-up entry, or entries! As regards to my question, it's actually rhetorical. We cannot say one is better and the other is inferior because both of which should be practiced: your skip bins contain wastes that can be categorized as either reusable or recyclable, or both. And speaking of categorizing wastes, maybe choosing the right hire bin can help you for that matter. Actually it does help. The design of skip hire matters a lot in providing solutions in wide range of solid wastes.

my first thought was that recycling is better than reusing..hehe!

i thought there are only a number of things that could be used compared to what could be recycled..hmmm

yup tama ka. you cannot reuse as much wastes as you can recycle. pero hindi lang naman yun ang basehan kung ano ang mas effective sa dalawa. :)
