recycling is good for the environment, it can be dangerous for workers. Certain materials that are recycled or reused, such electronics, scrap metal, batteries, and used oil and other chemicals, have materials that directly pose hazards to workers.

Exposure to hazardous substances may lead to acute and chronic health effects, and may potentially cause long-term public health and environmental impacts. Uncontrolled hazardous materials pose significant threats to public health through inhalation of dust particles.
