Waste sorting

For used packaging, environmentally hazardous product and electrical equipment management system to function successfully in Latvia, each of us shall involve. There are many ways how we can make our environment cleaner, preserve resources and improve our health.

 

Waste sorting importance and benefits

The simplest, but also the most important work that each of us can do on daily basis is waste sorting.

While sorting waste, we:

  • We turn waste into valuable secondary raw materials, which are used repeatedly in the product manufacturing;
  • Save natural resources, saving oil, timber and other resources for future generations, as well as significantly reducing water and energy resource consumption;
  • Save space on waste sites - to store only those wastes that are really no longer recyclable;
  • Save money as sorted waste is collected and recycled for free, while the rates for collection and disposal of unsorted household waste is increasing every year;
  • Preserve the environment and ecology, as waste, when left in nature or is improperly disposed of (eg, burning in a fire), causes significant pollution and risks to human health;
  • Beautify the nature around us – free of bottles dropped by the roadside or polyethylene bags jammed in shrub branches;
  • Show our attitude standing up for the future of the planet - for green and healthy lives not only for us, but also for our children and grandchildren

 

How to start sorting waste?

To start sorting waste, one does not need any investment or house re-planning. All the sorted waste - secondary raw materials can just be collected in different bags or separate bins, which are emptied periodically. We emphasize that the recyclable materials must be clean - washed up - so that no unpleasant odor, spotting or other adverse effects will occur.

 

How to arrange for sorted waste containers nearby my house?

For waste sorting to be handy, we ourselves shall take care of the availability of containers for sorted waste near our houses. For such a container to be installed, residents should contact their waste manager (who removes the waste) with a request to install separate collection containers for glass, plastic and paper. If you live in an apartment house, the house manager must collect the signatures of the majority of apartment owners and the application prepared on behalf of the entire house must be submitted to the manager.

The manager will assess whether the installation of separate collection containers is profitable – whether there is any space for the containers at all, whether the tenants will sort the waste carefully and will be able to "produce" secondary raw materials on a regular basis, and treat the installed containers with care. Near the houses, where these conditions are met, the installation of separate collection containers usually has not obstacles.

Environment

The objective of "Zala josta" is to create a clean and tidy Latvian environment, establishing a society, where a contractor is responsible and takes care of collection and recycling of the self-generated used packaging, environmentally hazardous products, electrical equipment, while members of the public are educated and motivated to sort the waste, discard it in the designated areas, as well as treat with care natural resources in general.

We have created a complex information block, where there is collected the most important information and auxiliary materials for all of us to participate fully in waste sorting and environmentally friendly lifestyle.

In order to facilitate the sorting of waste in the country, "Zala josta" provides consulting for a proper waste sorting at home, as well as has developed environmental education materials for different audiences about the proper disposal of waste and saving of natural resources.

We invite anyone interested to keep up with the activity section of "Zala josta", where we reflect upon the information about the company implemented environmental projects, environmental education activities, the recycled raw material collection competitions and many other "green" activities, inviting everyone to involve.

Choose a product with ECO sign!

The ECO label "Zala josta" on goods certifies to buyers that the product manufacturer or importer is involved in the used packaging or environmentally hazardous goods management program of "Zala josta" Ltd. and takes care of the packaging of goods or environmentally hazardous products to be collected after use, processed, delivered for re-circulating and for it not to cause any harm to the environment.

Thus, choosing the goods with the ECO label "Zala josta", you support those Latvian companies, which care about the environment and are responsible for the impacts on the environment caused by their business, attempting to minimize harmful impacts and protect nature.

For the ECO label to fulfill its principal functions, each of us shall be involved in the EKO label "Zala josta" system. In particular, we as consumers of goods must take care for the packaging of goods or environmentally hazardous goods after their use to be recycled. Therefore, remember – after drinking a soft drink, we wash the plastic bottle, flatten it and throw in a sorted collection container for plastics. After eating some jam the empty jar also shall be rinsed and thrown into a sorted collection container for glass waste. Also a cardboard box of the eaten up breakfast cereal shall be flattened and thrown into the container for paper waste. Similarly, we have to take care of used batteries delivering them to a special battery collection container.

"Zala josta" will take care of the future recycling of secondary raw materials. Our cooperation partners and subcontractors on contract basis operate all around the territory of Latvia by actively collecting and recycling the collected by you sorted waste. We can proudly announce that "Zala josta" with the mediation of specialized secondary raw material collection and recycling companies annually collects and regenerates much larger amount of the recyclable raw materials than required by the state laws.
