Bilecik Household and Industrial Waste Sorting Facility is to be Activated!
The waste rehabilitation facilities established in Eskişehir, Afyon and Bilecik are the samples as the first facilities working stable in Turkey. Today, the waste storage sites bring along with high costs to the local governments. The waste storage sites are going through the serious and expensive phases for preventing the environmentally – hazardous substances which may be included in wastes from leaking into the soil and following the end of life – time of storage facilities, overcosting rehabilitation works are required to close the site. Besides, the recycled materials which were not sorted at the resource causes these sites to become full as very earlier than the life – time because of their volume and also causes the cost increases as higher than the predicted amount.
The ambiguity in the issues such as packaging, waste and solid waste and also the insufficiency of information on recycling activities are the most important points preventing the people from participating in this process. Thus, very precious recyclable wastes are buried in the soil after being sent to the solid waste storages of local governments. This process carried the sorting of wastes to another stage with the contribution of developments in technology and industry. By means of the waste rehabilitation facilities, Turkey can rehabilitate the wastes directed to a single collection and sorting facility and can sort them as packaging wastes, organic wastes, calorific wastes and can open the door slightly to a new period.
