For the preservation of climate scale undertook in Lviv. There, all citizens will now know how to properly and correctly sort the garbage. Because it opened a special mini-sorting waste. Where not only collect and sort garbage, but also teach people how to throw it away.
There are no analogs of such sorting in Ukraine, therefore in Lviv they want to set an example, so that in other cities they start to treat waste responsibly.
In the editorial 24 channel already more than six months, media workers sort garbage. For this, the office installed special containers. Journalists, like all Lviv residents, can now bring the recycled materials to the sorting station. There is a special container for each type of garbage.
Aluminum cans, foam plastic, paper, food, stretch and shrink film, as well as clean plastic bags are collected in the sorting chamber. Plastic and PET bottles are sorted by color. And white bottles are also marked.
It is worth paying attention to the labeling. Because the longitudinal strip is a sign of plastic marking number two. This is high pressure polyethylene. It is safe for food and very good for recycling.

If you see a dot at the bottom of the label, this is the number one label. It is plastic with a dot of white color that is not recycled, – added Ilya Petrik.
Sorting works six days a week. What and where to correctly throw visitors to the consultant. Subsequently, all the raw materials that are collected here, on-site pressed and sent to specialized enterprises.
In general, in Ukraine they still use the outdated and non-alternative method of waste management – burial. 94% of all domestic waste, as in Soviet times, is taken to crowded landfills and landfills. Recycle only 5% of waste. Therefore, the more Ukrainians show that they need such responsible stations, the greater the likelihood that officials will begin to equip such municipal sorting stations.
What is dangerous plastic?
Under normal storage conditions, plastic does not exchange chemical elements with water. When heated, even slightly above room temperature, the active movement of toxic molecules from a plastic bottle into the liquid with which it is filled begins. It is clear that in the heat of more than 30 degrees such water becomes poisonous. Plastic contains bisphenol-A. This component has a negative effect on the thyroid gland, the central nervous system, provokes the inability to have children, hypertension, obesity and diabetes. The use of plastic increases the risk of chronic intoxication.
