Information campaign on waste sorting. How we sort plastic and metal


The Chisinau City Hall continues the information campaign to inform citizens about sorting solid household waste with plastic and metal.

The first step is to separate these types of waste (plastic containers, food tins, cosmetic containers, household items, aluminum containers/cups, cans, kitchen utensils, etc.) from biodegradable or mixed waste.

After separating the plastic and metal waste, we make sure it is clean and press it well so that it takes up less volume and throw it into the yellow container at the common waste storage platform near the building where we live.

With a bit of effort and organization, sorting waste can be easy and efficient. If we all put our efforts into sorting our waste, we would contribute to a clean, well-maintained city and a healthier and protected environment!
