AUGUST 2005: Waste separation
Talking about colors… The Natural History Museum of the UFMG in Belo Horizonte hosted these six waste bins. Colorful waste bins for plastic, metal, glass, paper, organic waste, and rest waste, consequently. Usually, all household waste is collected unseparated in little plastic bags, which are obtained at the supermarkets and hypermarkets. At dawn, long before the municipal waste collectors will pick them up, private waste collectors stroll along the roads for useful and recyclable materials which may provide them some money. In this way paper waste, tin cans and PET bottles are separated very efficiently.
