The disposable materials that we generate in our homes, depending on whether they are treated correctly or not, end up in landfills or household waste recycling centers.

A landfill is a site designated to dispose of the waste we generate. Typically, at these designated sites, large holes are built into which garbage is buried.

The recycling centers or household waste recycling centers, are places where recyclable waste is collected, separated and laid up, to be later transferred to another area or facility for recycling or transformation.

What goes in green recycling box?

Green recycling bins are typically the designated bins for depositing recyclable glass materials. However, this may vary depending on the municipality in which you are located. For example, in some municipalities the green color in the containers is used for dry recyclable materials.
