Let us approach the waste problem from the fact that it is the
direct consequence of the consumer society. The world of advertisements,
shopping malls and promotions induce us to buy. Even if we do not need
anything at the moment. This is waste production per se: we will throw
away the useless items, they will become waste. In Hungary each one of
us contributes to the environment contamination with around 500 kg waste
annually and this quantity is ever growing.
