5.1 What is the present situation?

Currently, landfill is the main disposal route for waste accumulation and processing. However, we are running out of space. Trying to find alternative solutions for handling the gradually increasing cost of waste disposal, as well as to control the pressure on environment and waste management services, legislative and administrative measures are implemented. Legislation is gradually changing and making waste separation mandatory for most businesses. Separation of waste in different source categories is essential to ensure maximum capability of recycling by producing clean waste streams.
