What is Zero Waste?
The disposal of wastes without being evaluated in the recycling and recovery process causes serious resource losses in terms of both material and energy. While the population and living standards in the world increase, there is an inevitable increase in consumption and this situation increases the pressure on our natural resources and disrupts the balance of the world and our limited resources cannot meet the increasing needs. Considering this situation, the efficient use of natural resources becomes even more important. That is why, in recent years, zero waste implementation studies have become widespread both individually, institutionally and throughout the municipality all over the world.
