Waste treatment

  1. 1. How is waste treated??? BY RALI IVAILOVA, NIKOL ANDREEVA AND NADIA SPASOVA
  2. 2. When it comes to waste treatment Bulgaria isn’t doing so well. In the EU Bulgaria has the second lowest waste treatment , and worst is only Greece.
  3. 3. The 1.25 million people who live in Sofia are ser to benefit from a major project which will deliver a modern , integrated municipal waste management system.
  4. 4. Bulgaria is a country, that faces serious waste management challenges. The current infrastructure is old, fractional and insufficient. Addressing the issue constitutes a major priority for the Bulgarian government and the planned areas for development
  5. 5. According to official data from the Ministry of Environment and Water, the state’s gross waste output accounts to more than 2.5 million metric tons on a year basis. Industrial waste represents approximately 70% of the total waste generated, municipal waste accounts for 25% and the remaining 5% is hazardous waste.
  6. 6. In 1991, the German government passed a packaging law that requires manufacturers to take care of the recycling or disposal of any packaging material they sell. As a result of this law, German industry set up a "dual system" of waste collection , which picks up household packaging in parallel to the existing municipal waste-collection systems.
  7. 7. This industry-funded system is operated in Germany by DSD.DSD only collects packaging material from manufacturers who pay a license fee to DSD.
  8. 8. DSD license fee payers can then add the Green Dot logo to their package labeling to indicate that this package should be placed into the separate yellow bags or yellow wheelie bins that will then be collected and emptied by DSD-operated waste collection vehicles and sorted in DSD facilities.
  9. 9. An important method of waste management is the prevention of waste material being created, also known as waste reduction. Methods of avoidance include reuse of second-hand products, repairing broken items instead of buying new, designing products to be refillable or reusable, encouraging consumers to avoid using disposable products , removing any food/liquid remains from cans and packaging , and designing products that use less material to achieve the same purpose.
