Recycling: Subserving the Selective Collection

Juliana Mazochi final report: Sustainable Development ISG 2015

There is a serious gap in the recycling chain, which conducts it to a partial efficiency. Therefore, the main problematic point found in the system is result of bad public Selective Collection. The principal actor in this process: the population. Heretofore, governments and enterprises have been working together in the recycling system aiming to reduce the problems generated by the garbage. In order to diminish the pollution, diseases and to improve the population´s quality of life the government regulates the enterprises activities by laws, as well as implement public methods to a better destination to the litter. Accordingly, the enterprises participate in the system because of the raw material scarce and to reduce their costs.

However, the consumer as the entity that generates the majority of the garbage, still has a complex and confusing way to give destination to it. The lack of a global pattern in the garbage can color, the insufficient distribution of them, added to the difficult to classify the components of the material to be discarded has been precluding the majority of the litter to arrive in the recycling system to be properly treated. Hence, this study objective is to propose a global solution to fill up this gap, in order to increase the efficiency in the Selective Collection system aiming to prevent more natural damages.
