The Recyclers, BICA Roatan

They are workers dedicated to recovering recyclable materials from the rest of the unusable waste. Recyclers recover mostly plastic bottles and aluminum cans, but also iron cans, plastic baskets and chairs, copper, and iron from construction or electronic devices, among others.

With their work, they reduce the amount of garbage that ends up buried in the municipal landfill and increase the amount of materials that can be reincorporated in the production of new products.

By separating, we dignify the work of recyclers and allow less garbage to end up buried in the landfill, in the sea or in the environment in general.
Waste separation at source is the practice of separating materials that can be reused (or recycled) from those that are waste. In addition, this is exactly the difference between garbage and waste.  The separation must be carried out at the place where the waste is generated: whether at home, offices, schools, hotels, restaurants, etc. The types of material to be separated will depend on the management of Municipal Solid Waste and the recycling options of each municipality.

From an environmental and public health point of view, proper management of waste in the stages following its generation makes it possible to mitigate negative impacts on the environment and health and reduce pressure on natural resources.
