The impact of waste on the environment is an important problem to need to be solved from developed countries worldwide. Waste management is now a needed process on protecting the environment.
Disposal of waste into the environment, hazardous or not, leads to a gradual destruction of the natural environment. Recycling enables the existing products to be easily exploited, using waste to generate energy and “new” products.
The process of recycling is the highway that is been pursued by governments in the form of a restricted governmental framework for achieving environmental protection as well as economic strategy in general.
Recycling is the key factor for the EU’s strategy on moving to an economy where it uses its natural resources more efficiently. Eurostat data already shows that recycling covers 41% of paper and cardboard consumption, 42% of iron and steel, 10% of aluminum, 14% of glass and 2% of plastic. There is potential for even greater participation of recycled materials in the production of raw materials such as plastic, glass and various individual metallic elements. The development of new technologies is needed to improve recycling rates and provides opportunities for the development of research and professional innovations. (source: https://www.eoan.gr/)
Recycle Greece provides full information to partner managers on waste sorting at the production site, with the aim of facilitating their treatment and reducing management costs for the manager, producer and unit collecting and safely transporting them from source to site storage and then the processing unit or directly from the source to the unit.
