We are specialists in waste management in Croatia. Our goal is to create a cleaner and better environment in which society can lead a satisfied life. Therefore, recycling is of utmost importance to achieve this goal.
Every activity produces hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Properly disposed waste is a useful raw material which enables recycling and reuse. This saves new raw materials and energy, reduces the pollution of the environment and the quantity of newly produced waste.
Why should waste be collected separately?
Sustainable development requires waste handling in accordance with the principles of environment protection, social acceptability and efficiency. The best solution would be if the production of waste could be avoided completely. The waste that cannot be avoided should be reused under balanced ecological and economic conditions. Hence, it is particularly important to collect it separately at the place where it arises, with the purpose of:
- separating the useful parts (paper, glass, cardboard, bio-waste, plastics, etc.) with the goal of recycling
- separating hazardous waste (oil, batteries, medicines, chemicals, etc.) with the goal of detoxification and recycling
By collecting and recycling waste, its final disposal can be avoided. This enables the use of many useful components. Moreover, separately collected waste types are used as raw materials for obtaining new products. Thereby, the environmental pollution is reduced, and energy is saved. Besides, collecting waste and recycling realize other economic benefits, such as the reduction of import of secondary raw materials (e.g. glass, paper and metal), reduction of disposal costs, employment of workers etc.
Pursuant to the Act on Sustainable Waste Management (OG 94/13), a waste producer must hand over its waste to the person that has a permit for collecting, recovery and/or disposal of waste.
