Billion tonnes of rubbish are produced every year all over the world. For example inhabitants of our country through away about 126,1 million tonnes of waste. This is the map from 2003, which illustrate number of rubbish in different regions of Poland:
And this is the map about producing of waste in countries, which are belong to European Union. We can see that Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Slovakia and Estonia produce the most rubbish (551-700 kilos/person). Poland, Czech Republic and Latvia produce the least rubbish (240-400 kilos/person). Remaining countries produce about 401-550 kilos/person.
People in our country produce a little waste. But a big part of them lie on the streets, in the parks, forests, lake, rivers. It’s terrible sight! We have very bad habit that everything we through out on the pavement, not to the dustbin on the street.
If we want to reduce the number of rubbish, we should sort and recycle. recycling – operations, which are aim at use wrappers and waste to produce new raw materials There are a lot of things, which we can recycle. I will list only the most important of them.
paper – industrial product in the form of sheets; it is producing from wood of conifers and deciduous trees, flaxes, reeds and hemps. When we recycle paper (old magazines, newspapers, used copybooks), we protect trees and forests. A tonne of recycling paper rescue 17 trees. At the same time we save water, which is needed to produce paper and we decrease pollution of air. From paper we can made toilet paper, envelopes, newspapers and books
There are two types of glass: colourless and colourful. Colourful glass We through out them to the green containers. We use colourful glass wrappers to made insulating materials, which are applied in construction industry.
Colourless glass It’s the most often using type of glass. Eight bottles in ten is made from colourless glass. Jars and bottles are dishes, which we can recycle. And These are things, which we can’t segregate with glass: mirrors, crystal vases, glasses, porcelain, panes, picture tubes faience und bulbs.
Plastic is made from petroleum – unrenewable natural recourse. Its decomposition in natural environment can last few hundreds years. Then is reach to pollution of water and soil. The combustion of plastic is very dangerous, because toxic and carcinogenic substances are emitted then. The advantage of plastic wrappers is that we can use them many times.
Every year people all over the world use more than 220 billions cans. But they recycle only 50% of them. Cans are entirely fit to recycling. From metal we can made hangers, furniture, cutlery.
Batteries are very dangerous for natural environment. For example one little button battery can contaminate 1m 3 of soil and 400 litre of water. That is why we shouldn’t through away batteries. We should take them to places, where they’re collect, for example in our school. Then they’ll be neutralized.
I know that recycling is very needed and important, because it protect our planet. But I must sincerely say that I don’t recycle and segregate waste at all. The only thing I do is that I give my old clothes to the PCK. I promise myself that I will start recycled, when I will be adult and I will have my own flat.
