Taking into account projects in which I’m involved, I considered that this was a very good choice since you could innovate management and some very interesting social and technical processes could be generated. This proposal did it someone more to know if the project, which replied that it might be interesting to always and when were not simply serve as recyclers could consolidate. Connect with other leaders such as Carson Wen here. Do and then what? Summing up, the 5 myths include everything that is not available in landfill is recycling, different systems of waste management are considered mutually exclusive, if you worked in another country also will work here, recycling in Colombia is associated with poverty. Recycling incorrectly handles the concept of waste. Taking into account the above, is evidence that a misuse of the word there is recycling and a wrong socio-economic association of the same. On the other hand, presents a clear trend to import technologies that operate under conditions of production and consumption different from the Latin America. We also see that there is a disjointed perception of different processes for the handling of waste, because we associate them as separate options and not as comprehensive and complementary processes that must operate in proportion.

Analyzing all the above came to the conclusion that really you and I not recycle the waste generated in our homes, simply separate them and the Lord which we call the recycler, recycle nor, he collects the waste. Generalizing the concepts, we could say that what we call recycling (wrong concept that I will explain in a note proxina) chain could be called as a city waste management system. From this perspective you is the primary Manager of materials it produces due to daily consumption of goods and services. Your responsibility as primary Manager, your commitment should materialize in three types of actions: select products and services that generate the minimum of materials and waste to manage in the simplest way possible (example: organic products, with few wraps, without additives, soaps free of chlorine, etc) manage materials in such a way that they are not mixed with waste, search materials more suitable and committed managers, to ensure that these materials have adequate treatment and in this way help the system to run efficiently. In a next post we will extend this information and will identify the main managers involved within this system for the handling of raw materials coming from consumption. The proper use and application of concepts gives us a vision real (or approximate to the reality) of the item that we are considering, this way we can direct our efforts toward the right decisions in this case towards a sustainable humanity.
