The more developed a society is, the more waste it produces. This means that
the amount of waste created increases over the years and Estonia or Tallinn are
no exceptions. More waste means more consumption and waste of resources. Sorting
and recycling waste is essential to slowing down this process. Doing this means
that our next generations will also have the resources they need for life. Most
of the waste created can be sorted at home. The more waste we sort and the more
we recycle, the less waste we throw into containers and the less we have to pay
for waste transport. All in all, sorting waste is cheaper for consumers. Most of
the waste created in households consists of packaging, leftover food and paper.
People should at least separate paper, packaging, leftover food and hazardous
waste from other waste in order to save natural resources.
When you put packaging in the bin, you pay double, because the price of
packaging waste management has already been added to the product!
