Sustainability is moving ever higher up the social agenda. Government, businesses and citizens are more aware than ever of the need to handle raw materials and waste streams wisely and efficiently. For instance, the National Waste Management Plan 2 (2017-2021) requires the authorities to separate waste, causing the national government to adopted a sustainable waste separation requirement (waste separation at source) – an example which is now being widely adapted.
Sustainable waste separation is not just a matter of having the right waste bins; above all, it is a way of thinking and acting. The ultimate goal is to get the whole of Europe handling waste with awareness. In doing so, we consider every organisation – large or small – equally important. Even installing one waste unit makes a contribution to sustainability.
