Interactive Exhibition: Plastic in our lives!
15/03/2020 @ 11:00 - 15:00
In our everyday lives we produce general waste in our homes, offices, schools and similar premises. This type of waste is called municipal waste, it is an important measure of how wasteful our everyday lives are.
Each person living in Ireland generated an average of 577 kg of municipal waste in 2017, in 2011 it amounted to 367kg. The recycling rate of municipal waste managed in 2017 was 41%, a quarter (23%) of municipal waste was landfilled (EPA).
This interactive plastic exhibition aims to help you understand what can and cannot be recycled and why, we will look at the challenges faced by you in managing your waste and the alternatives.
