Waste separation is one of the most popular forms of environmental protection. It enables waste to be recycled so that it can be used again. This process, known as recycling, reduces the consumption of natural resources and the emission of greenhouse gases into the environment.
By separating waste paper, for example, we contribute to reducing air pollution, energy and water consumption and the number of trees that are cut down. One hundred tonnes of waste paper equals 90 tonnes of recycled paper, while producing one tonne of paper requires cutting down as many as 17 trees.
Properly separated plastic waste is recycled into recycled packaging without polluting our soil and water. By ensuring that plastics are recycled correctly, we protect natural resources that will benefit not only us but also future generations.
