Individuals buy many goods to meet their needs. These goods are frequently packaged for preservation in healthy and secure conditions. For example, take a box of juice. When the juice is finished the box that remains is now packaging waste. Packaging waste can be recycled when it is collected separately from other waste.

It is easy!

We can take the initial step at home by collecting packaging in separate bags. Recycling can then begin when we deposit the packaging waste we collect at home in packaging waste containers closest to your house. If there are no packaging waste containers within your municipality you should apply to your municipal administration.

Demand it for your future!Keep in mind that in accordance with the “Regulation on the Control of Packaging Waste”, municipal administrations are under the obligation of collecting, or having collected, separately packaging waste at the source.

You can collect separately product packages at home, at work and during shopping. At home you should collect packaging waste separately in blue garbage bags. It is a sufficient first step towards recycling if you turn these bags in to the superintendent of your building. You can also either drop the separately collected packaging waste into recycling containers provided by your municipal authority or dispose of such waste by dropping into packaging waste bins at work or at school. The containers need to be regularly emptied by the municipal authority.

If your municipal authority has no such practice you can file an application in this regard. In accordance with the Regulation on Control of Packaging Waste, district municipal authorities are under the obligation to prepare a management plan regarding separate collection of packaging waste and collect or have collected such packaging waste.

Belediyenizin bu yönde bir çalışması var ancak atıklarınız toplanmıyor ise, belediyenize başvurarak hangi gün ve saatlerde mahallenizde atıkların toplandığına dair bilgi almanız gerekmektedir.

You need to inform your municipal authority first regarding all of your bin requests. Upon approval of your request, packaging waste bins shall be delivered by municipal authorities you are affiliated with.
