Isfahan pioneer in waste source separation

"About 12 to 13 percent of waste in Isfahan is separated from the source; the percentages can be increased with the development of culture-building practices," the CEO of waste management organization of Isfahan municipality said.

Isfahan (IMNA) – "1000 to 1200 tons of waste is collected daily in Isfahan which consist of dry waste and wet waste," Ali Dehnavi said. Stating that every waste that is biodegradable, produces leachate, and smells very bad is considered as the wet waste, and other waste is dry waste, he added, "Citizens should collect the dry waste and deliver it to the fixed and mobile recycling stations in order to return them to the cycle of production and reuse."

"Although Isfahni citizens are pioneer in the country regarding source separation, we are still away from the international standards. We must strive to reach the standard statistics of advanced countries," he emphasized. Mentioning that Isfahan municipality will allocate a cultural center to the waste management that its main task will be training and culture-building practices, Dehnavi said, "We will try to provide the suitable context for students to visit this cultural center during their academic year."

Pointing to the holding of visiting tour to the organic fertilizer factory during the week without nylon, he added, "In this plan, housewives visited the waste factory for the first time and became aware of the process of recycling the waste; it was a very effective action. A kind of garbage has also designed to collect dry waste that will be distributed in schools and other public places; this action is very effective in culture-building practices regarding the source separation of waste."
