STEPS TO ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY. SEPARATE WASTE COLLECTION

In previous issues of the "Humanity. Society. Nature" we got acquainted with the sources of pollution of natural environments. Starting from this release, we will gradually consider the system of environmental safety of enterprises, which provides a comprehensive, timely and reliable assessment of indicators, the use of which will allow you to get an idea of the degree of environmental friendliness of its production, the environmental efficiency of its environmental activities.

Ensuring environmental safety has become one of the most important tasks of modern society. Environmental safety can be realized only if the life, health and living conditions of a person are preserved, and if the society and its environment are protected from threats arising from the impact on the environment.

 

 

Separate waste collection on a permanent basis

The first step to implementing environmental safety is a rational way of handling waste from production and consumption – separate collection on a permanent basis. The most important task is to learn how to divide the fractions of garbage and, accordingly, not to throw them in one container. This is called for by state bodies ― the Ministry of energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan, all environmental, law enforcement agencies, environmental departments and environmental associations.

Separate collection and sorting of waste, simplify the task of processing, since all the collected debris, depending on the distance between the ground and a gathering place, or is delivered directly to the processing plant, or distribution center, or transfer station. In sorting centers, the sorted waste is reloaded into large containers by means of a garbage collector. This significantly reduces the transport costs associated with their delivery from the place of formation to the landfill for disposal.

Well, since the waste arrives at the processing plant already pre-sorted, the costs of sorting it are also reduced, which makes recycling a fairly profitable activity.

 

The rules of waste sorting


* All food waste, as well as other organic waste, such as grass, leaves, as well as paper towels and towels, should be thrown away.

* The glass must be disposed of in a separate container.

* Paper and cardboard should also be collected separately from all other garbage.

* Plastic and metal packaging is recyclable, so it must be collected in separate containers.

* Batteries, mercury lamps, and other environmentally hazardous items must be collected in separate containers.

* Unsuitable for recycling must also be collected separately.
