Human society produces a wide array of waste types that are collected and treated in many different ways.
The everyday items you throw away hold a wealth of resources. After your general waste is collected, it is processed to recover as much of these resources as possible for reuse in new products.
Some waste streams can pose risks to human and environmental health and safety. Specific regulatory requirements and procedures cover how these specialised waste streams are collected and processed.
It’s not difficult to separate your waste into different streams for recycling, but it can make a huge impact. Effective recycling increases the volume of waste diverted from landfill for reuse in new products while protecting our untouched natural resources.
