Waste is a terrible thing to waste
ACCORDING TO Statistics Finland, there was 2.7 million tons of community waste produced in 2016. About 3 percent of this waste volume was taken to waste disposal sites.
In Finland that year, the breakdown per person was 500 kilos – the biggest individual waste items were food and beverage, paper, board and cardboard. The total volume of electrical appliances/electronics waste (60,000 tons) is now six times bigger than during the early years of the millennium.
Recycling is necessary, if one wishes to cope with the changing times – in a manner that is both smart and sustainable.
