The population in Israel produces about 5 million tons of mixed household waste each year. This amount increases every year and will be doubled by 2020 to 10 million tons of household waste per year. The purpose of the plan of separating waste at source is reduction of the amount of waste that reaches various dumping sites and minimizing the volume of dumping as well as reducing financial costs and recycling recyclable waste following classification.
During separation at source the waste is separated into dry waste and wet waste. The dry waste is then separated into the various components such as plastic, paper, metal and glass which are then transferred from Negev Ecology sorting center to recycling plants.
The wet waste is transferred to our compost site for treatment and following a composting process it is used in agriculture in the form of quality organic fertilizer which improves the soil for better agriculture crops.
Negev Ecology operates a nationwide network of waste collection including a unique treatment of wet and dry waste from clients’ premises to the recycling and compost production plants. Such a network reduces the amount of waste transferred to the dumping sites thus reduces the costs related to transport and dumping fees.
Food chains, catering chains, institutional kitchens, packing houses and food factories around Israel can be found amongst our clients.
