Europe has announced an increase in the danger of "garbage" problems


In Europe, an unexpected problem has emerged that, experts say, could exacerbate the pandemic of the new coronavirus. This is a new round of "garbage" problems, which are now faced due to the spread of the disease in Europe.


The French edition of La Tribune released material that spoke about the enormous problems in the field of waste processing. In particular, it is reported that many processing and waste sorting enterprises were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic not only in France, but also in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and other EU countries. This led to the fact that the collection of waste of various classes was suspended.

From the material:

Closed 27% of certified household waste disposal centers. Up to 94% of the remaining garbage processing enterprises are forced to carry out activities according to a "degrading" scheme - with reductions in the number of employees and their working hours.

This can simultaneously strike an environmental blow when garbage can simply stop not only being sorted, but also disposed of, as well as a blow to industry.

The material contains a statement by the head of one of the major French trade unions:

The danger is that problems with sorting and processing will subsequently lead to a reduction in the supply of materials for enterprises.

It is noted that now there is a shortage of industrial cardboard for food packaging.

Recall that not so long ago the biggest problems with garbage in Europe appeared in Italy: the streets of large cities were literally littered with waste that had not been cleaned for weeks.

        Not so long ago, Lviv’s measures “successfully” solved this problem when it was transporting garbage all over Ukraine, up to Kharkov. But then there was no quarantine.
        There used to be “black humor” from Sweden: from used batch condoms they make for the Finns ... chewing gum.

          Yes, it seems like we had it in Moscow. Although I could be wrong

        Europe will suffocate in its ... Garbage.

        But Russia should take an example from the Europeans in terms of achieving the level of recycling. We have towering mountains of garbage in a landfill. One capital produces tens of millions of tons of waste annually on the mountain.

        And in Europe, the level of garbage recycling - from 90%.
    2. In Italy, if I am not mistaken, about five years ago there was a garbage collapse due to a garbage collector's strike.
      And it is profitable to export to Sweden. They buy trash for their superfood mills!

      I wouldn’t go to the garbage from, say, Italian Bergamo-on a cannon shot .....

      The same thrown out of thousands of masks, gloves, clothes, etc.

      Even funeral workers — even those who abandoned the most profitable business — many were rebuilt and they no longer needed ....

    It seems that by the end of the pandemic mountains of protective suits and masks will be released, and for another year all this will be stored in warehouses just in case

      And from piles of garbage and unsanitary conditions, God forbid, something else flares up. What is another plague, or cholera. Not one, but another.

    After such articles, it causes outright indignation when they say about Western society - "civilized West."
    The old woman Europe, despite the epidemic, the need to "wipe the ass" has not been canceled.

    Waste superimposed on a pandemic. So they, in addition to everything, will drown in their own shit. And the accumulation of garbage and even at freezing temperatures is a source of new diseases, rats, which are also carriers of diseases, are modestly silent. "Enlightened, pure soul and body, filled with good wishes and care for people" Europe, where are you? Have you ever been like that?

    Wait, there will be more. For example, tires in Europe haven’t been processed for a long time - it's a dirty business. They were driven to India, where they were processed into ship fuel oil, which was again driven to Europe. Now one and the other hid, let's look further.

    That's about it. All these quarantines and "self-isolation", the case when the medicine is worse than the disease. We get sick with dysentery, scabies, hepatitis, stop treating cancer and cardiovascular, but not coronavirus! And what's the point?

    I sincerely hope that at least in this Russia will not rush to help the "world community." hi

    Mankind is behaving strangely. It turns out to create a robotic line that collects cars is possible, but the one that sorts the garbage is impossible? I doubt that Europe is going to sort the garbage in Europe

      You can create, but you can’t get high profit from it. Life support systems are NOT cost-effective by definition. And the capitalist system will never be able to cope with this, because its main preset is profit.
      Here, by the way, is a complete analogy with viruses and parasites - those too, if they win, they kill their carrier and die themselves.

        Alternative energy in the EU is entirely dated, the rejection of coal as a type of fuel is also a solid cost. Everything is in priority, most likely the EU's garbage lobby is weak, ahead of energy. In this matter, profitability is not the main argument.

          So this is the "key". These very “lobbies”, after all, do not promote someone’s interests for free either, which means that their employers expect to make big profits if they incur such expenses. You can cut the budget in different ways - in "civilized" countries this is done with the help of subsidies. Ultimately, the goal remains the same - making a profit, and do not give a damn about the environment. This is about alternative energy.

    This infection is not a simple one, it pulls, exacerbates a bunch of problems that could not be resolved normally without it.
    In short, it will not resolve itself, it should be obvious to everyone!

    The state should deal with waste management, it’s a costly and troublesome business, there are hardly anyone who wants to do it of their own free will.

    The Carpathian forests were not enough for environmentally friendly packaging, for the golden billion - sadness. tongue

    In Moscow, everything is a bundle!
    In general, it is necessary to introduce standardization of all materials from which waste is obtained, then it will be much easier to recycle them.
    It is necessary to reduce all this disgrace and streamline.

    Garbage recycling is evil: hepatitis, coronavirus, etc. will return to where the garbage came from. Therefore, only combustion, high temperature pyrolysis, supercritical water, etc.

    Landfill also does not help - in 2006 in Alaska, in the body of a person who died in 1920 from a Spaniard (H1N1 flu, blue death) and was buried in permafrost, live virus particles - virions were found after defrosting.
