Today's theme is the Differentiated How to divide waste. Each municipality has its own specifications for the differentiated waste(there are those who collect multi-material, associating aluminum with plastic, those who collect individual tetrapak ...) for this reason, every citizen should request a specific information brochure from the administration they belong to. Generally speaking, there are some basic rules to follow in waste separation and today we will try to understand just how to divide waste to perform the collection correctly differentiated.
Differentiated How to divide the waste, the paper
Plasticized cards or dirty handkerchiefs must not be inserted in the paper collection (these go into the organic if they are white or undifferentiated if they have colored prints). Sometimes, along with paper (magazines, paper, newspapers, cartons), beverage cartons must be added.
Differentiated How to divide the waste, the plastic
Plastic toys, electronic plastic components or bulky objects should not be included in the plastic collection. All packaging and everything that serves as a container (bottles, flacons, envelopes…) must be placed in the plastic container. Many Italian municipalities, along with plastic, also collect aluminum cans and containers.
Differentiated How to divide the waste, the glass
The glass must be delivered in bulk without bag and possibly without any label.
Differentiated How to divide the waste, the organic fraction
Organic is everything that can end up in the composter: the collection of the organic fraction must be carried out in special biodegradable containers (paper bags, mater-bi or similar). All food leftovers, food scraps and paper handkerchiefs (only if they do not have prints) must be transferred to the staff.
Differentiated How to divide the waste, the undifferentiated dry
The collection of the dry it concerns all those non-recyclable materials: toys, paper handkerchiefs with organic residues that have prints, tubes of creams, sanitary towels, clothes hangers, bulky plastic objects….
