Waste Management Pyramid

The Waste Management Pyramid Eco-friendly is evaluated from the upper level to the lower levels. In other words, the first step is to prevent the formation of waste, if this cannot be achieved, it is aimed to minimize the waste, in other words, to minimize the waste. Then, if this is not possible, first recycling and then energy recovery are aimed. After these applied methods, the last treatment to be done to the waste that we have left or to the waste that we cannot apply these methods is disposal.

Reuse:It is the use of the packaging until it is impossible to reuse it in its own life cycle, by being refilled without any processing other than collection and cleaning, or used in the same form for the same purpose until the end of its useful life.

Recycling: It is the recycling of waste materials as raw materials into manufacturing processes through various physical and chemical processes after use.

Energy recovery: It is the process of incineration of combustible wastes (with a certain calorific value) in specially designed facilities, alone or together with other wastes, in order to obtain heat and electrical energy.

Compost: (Organic Recycling) Composting is the biological decomposition of organic matter under controlled conditions. In the composting process, some organic materials are broken down by CO2 and water. This process takes place at approximately 60-65 0C and in specially designed sections containing 80-90% humidity. After processing, the waste looks like a rich soil type with a dark, humus-like structure. Thus, compostable wastes can be used as an energy source instead of manure with this method.

Plastic wastes are first separated according to their types and recycled. Recyclable plastic wastes, which are separated according to their types, are broken into small pieces in crushing machines. Enterprises can use these parts directly in the production process by mixing them with the original raw material in certain proportions; It can also be used as a second class raw material by melting it again and adding additives.

When used plastics are recycled and put into production, new coats, industrial fibers, work hats, grocery cart handles, school and workplace parts, golf and tennis equipment, garden furniture cornerstones, garbage collection boxes, flower pots, benches, auto spare parts, water meter box It is possible to obtain new plastic products such as buckets, carpet material and drain pipes.
