Zero Waste Project in Turkey
Zero Waste project is being actively implemented in Turkey. At one of the processing plants in Bursa, in just an hour, 5 tons of plastic waste is converted into useful raw materials. Raw materials are in the textile industry for the manufacture of synthetic materials. It is also used to make new PET containers that fully comply with modern environmental standards. There is a serious demand for processed raw materials, and not only in Turkey itself; some of these raw materials are exported. All over Turkey, special containers are now being installed for the separate waste collection. Educational work is being carried out in schools, where children are explained how to give plastic a "second life".
