The first step of the recycling process is SEPARATE WASTE COLLECTION. Responsibility lies with citizens, who must presort their garbage and divide the various kinds of packaging, and the local authorities, who must decide what to collect and how to collect it.
These are the main categories for items that can be recycled:
water and beverage bottles, detergent bottles, food trays, bags, jars, films, lids
tins, sprays, boxes, tubes, thin sheets like films or lids
tins for vegetables, tuna or tomatoes
magazines, newspapers, notebooks, brochures, pasta boxes, soap boxes
produce crates, boxes, containers for various foods, etc.
water or wine bottles, jars, etc.
