Recycling is an emerging discipline in Nigeria, it is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash. There are three main types of recycling: primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary recycling, also known as closed loop recycling, is the process of turning one thing into more of the same thing, like paper into more paper or soda cans into more soda cans. Secondary recycling means turning something into other things made of the same material in essentially the same form. Tertiary or chemical recycling, on the other hand, requires breaking materials down chemically to produce something very different. Recently, a new legislation was approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC). Initiated by the Federal Ministry of Environment, this national policy aims at improving plastic waste management in the most populous country on the African continent.
