Rubbish bin

Waste not, want not

Belarusians produce on average 300 kg of household waste per year, but the per capita average is higher for city dwellers.

Here are some ways to generate less waste at home:

  • Estimate how much waste your family produces each year.
  • Make a place to separate different types of waste: paper, plastic packaging, food waste, glass etc.
  • If you don’t plan to return glass bottles, leave them in a conspicuous place so other people can return them for deposit money.
  • If possible, deposit glass, plastic and metal waste in separate waste collection containers.
