IN SERVICE THE FIRST MUNICIPAL RECYCLE POINT FOR WEEE WASTE IN PIŁA (POLAND)

The fact that Altvater Piła has funded the first Municipal Electric Waste Point in Piła (MPE), that is, a special container in which electrical waste can be safely collected – reported on its website (quoting Altvater Piła ) Piła City Council (UM). According to the magistrate, MPE was installed on April 20 in front of one of the shopping centers in Piła.

ELECTRICAL WASTE THREATENS THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.

The Piła website indicated that, according to estimates, each pole produces about 16 kilograms of electrical waste per year, of which only 7 kg is properly collected and processed. At the same time, UM indicates that few people are aware that the penalty for throwing this type of waste in municipal waste containers can reach 5,000. PLN. “However, the damage caused to the environment is the most severe. For example, fluorescent lamps contain mercury which, just after plutonium, is considered the most toxic of all metals found in nature. After penetrating the soil or water, it can contaminate them and has a very detrimental effect on all living organisms. Batteries are also very dangerous. A small battery, the so-called The button, with which the toys are equipped, can pollute up to 400 liters of water and one cubic meter of earth. “- You can read the information published by the POI.

NEW MUNICIPAL ELECTRONIC WASTE POINT IN PIŁA TO FACILITATE THE CORRECT MANAGEMENT OF WEEE.

The municipality emphasizes that “Since the selective collection of this type of waste is so important, Altvater comes to the rescue”. – As specialists in waste management, we are very aware of the damage that electrical waste can cause to the environment. At the same time, we understand that residents may have problems with the proper disposal of this type of waste, so we decided to make it easier for them by building the first Municipal Electric Waste Point in Piła – said Tomasz Bielański, CEO of Altvater Piła.

The information indicated that the MPE is an aesthetic and easily accessible device consisting of seven tubes with a capacity of 33 liters each. You can put CDs, small electronic devices (for example, calculators and remote controls), batteries, light bulbs, and fluorescent lamps in them. Individual tubes are properly marked. Altvater Piła will take responsibility for collecting and managing the collected waste.

MUNICIPAL ELECTRIC WASTE POINT IN PIŁA: THE ANSWER TO THE CHALLENGE IN THE FIELD OF WASTE EDUCATION.

– Piła is a green city and we want us and the next generations to enjoy the beauty of the nature that surrounds us for as long as possible. As a local government, we carry out a number of pro-green activities and we appreciate every initiative that supports these activities. Piła is our city, our home that everyone should take care of. That is why I would like to thank the Altvater company and encourage residents to use the Municipal Electric Waste Point – Piotr Głowski, Mayor of Piła, appealed.

Pilski MPE was created thanks to the prize funded by the Marshal of the Voivodeship of Greater Poland in the category “Active in Greater Poland” as part of the Recycling Cup Contest. – The Municipal Electric Waste Points are a response to the challenge of educating the public about the segregation of hazardous waste. Broken cell phones, chargers, CDs and fluorescent lamps are dangerous for the environment because they contain many harmful and poisonous substances. The “Recycling Leader”, which Altvater Piła became in autumn 2020, allocates the financial award received to the community in the city of Staszica. I think this is a very socially responsible attitude, for which I would like to thank you for the initiative. Jacek Bogusławski, a member of the Wielkopolska Region Management Board, responsible for environmental protection tasks, praised the initiative.
