This flier is made by the Clan Enapay (scout group of Porcia 1). It aims to simplify the recognition of what must be recycled and how to do that. It also offers references in case of doubts or concerns. We decided to do this in English because we want to include every citizens, in order to make the recycling accessible and easy to everyone. We believe in the importance of each person’s effort so we can make this city and the world a better place to live in

And now some information about some very polluting waste


  • Only 15-20% of the world's plastic waste is recycled
  • In Europe 27.1 million tons of plastic waste were collected in 2016, only 31% is been sent to the recycling chain
  • Every year from 4 to 12 tons of plastic end up in the sea
  • In Italy, on a sample of 62 monitored beaches, 67 waste was found every 100 meters


  • The exhausted oil, when it reaches high temperatures, oxidizes and tends to absorb the polluting substances of the charred food during the cooking process
  • If dispersed underground, it settles to create a sort of film that prevents the spread of nutrients into the soil, making plants and crops inedible
  • If it reaches the aquifers, 1 L is enough to make 1 million liters of water not drinkable
  • 1 kilo of oil is enough to cover 1000 square meters of land
  • Oil in sewers causes deterioration of purifiers for biological treatment


  • If only 1% of the masks were not recycled, this would mean putting 10 million of these devices into the environment, that is 40,000 kilos of plastic
  • On a secluded beach, about 100 masks were found in 100 meters
  • The disposable masks are composed of polypropylene, a derivative of fossil fuels which it takes hundreds of years to degrade
  • Reusable masks are an eco-friendly alternative to avoid increasing exponentially the pollution of the seas and the environment

During the summer, seasonal beaches are overrun with visitors, and we find overwhelming amounts of single use plastics littered across the sand. We've been finding more and more of this personal protective equipment (PPE) since Coronavirus emerged. You can help by leaving the beach cleaner than you found it, and making small changes to your everyday life. Respect the ocean.
