New Era in Packaging Waste Management

Ministry of Environment and Urbanization of Turkish Republic started in 2016 the awareness raising program for recycling for those, who work at out-of-home consumption points as hotel, restaurant, entertainment places and cafes (Horeca).

Within the framework of the programme, costs are minimized by performing activities as awareness raising of the employees regarding the separation of glass packaging wastes from other wastes, appropriate equipment design and placement, definition of appropriate collection timing and frequency through monitoring the load factor of the equipment. The outputs of these practices will allow to cover all the packaging wastes (metal, paper/card box, plastics etc.) all through the country, in particular touristic regions.
