First I would say the satisfaction I get from being part of the solution.  I like the opportunity to get rid of large clutter that takes up too much space in the garbage can. In the long run, saving both the environment, resources, and money.

Well, you get a sense of self-satisfaction from helping the environment, you can use it as community service if you need any, you save money, you help the environment, your children will have healthier lives because you are not polluting the air, you will have a healthier life because you are not polluting the air, and you are saving the animals that are close to extinction. That would make you feel really good, huh?

Personal benefit? That may be part of why so many people do not take the time to recycle. They are searching for instant gratification in it when the results are more for keeping the earth a safe place to live for our children, their children and so on. We should get the the satisfaction of knowing that we are helping the environment as well.

Mainly feel good community service as stated, however in the medium to long run, the economic growth of a country will increase as its production possibility frontier will expand out as fewer new resources allocated to the production of goods. This should, in theory, also be reflected in prices. So hopefully prices in the nEr future of recycled materials will be less.also the thought of helping towards the sustainable development of the world and the reality that were making life easier on our great grandchildren should also be one.

Recycling reduces the need for raw materials, so that our forests can be preserved. By reducing the amount of energy required in production of new materials through recycling, we are also conserving our energy resources, for ourselves as well as our future generations.

I must say there's no financial benefit you can earn. BUT, if you don't do recycling, you're paying for it. Because resources are wasted and less and harder and get. It's a simple rule that things are valued when they are rare, like a panda.

Perhaps there're some organizations paying for your recycling.

I don't think we really can say that we recycle for our 'personal' benefit at all.  The point of recycling is to benefit our environment and the society (present and future).    If we get a warm feeling out of this then that is all well and good, but it's not a benefit per se.    Reduction, on the other hand (where we actually reduce the amount of goods, food, etc, that we consume) can bring enormous personal benefits - as long as we accept the odd material sacrifice along the way!
