ZERO WASTE
CONCEPT

The concept of Zero Waste has as main objective the maximum reuse of residues and reduction – or even end – the forwarding of waste to landfills. Provides that materials that are often discarded in ordinary garbage and / or taken to recycling dirty and mixed, making harder its reuse, to be forwarded to power plants, factories or new businesses that use them as raw material.

We can also say that "Zero Waste is a concept of life (urban and rural) in which the individual and therefore all organizations of which he is part, is to reflect and become aware of the ways and purposes for disposal of their waste before consign them to landfill or simply get rid of your waste completely, making it what we call garbage''. In Brazil, we allocated much of our waste to landfill as waste.
