Green Love (Green Love)

Green Love is a waste management initiative. It operates as an intermediary, collecting classified materials for their final proper disposal through recycling. Once segregated and consolidated, the waste is delivered to different recycling plants, where it is used as raw materials to make new products. We offer a practical solution to the problem of waste disposal while helping reduce the environmental impact these wastes can have. By recycling, we reduce the quantity of waste that is burned in incinerators, winds up in bodies of water, or is deposited in dumps, increasing their useful life. Thus, we are contributing to the saving of natural resources such as wood, water and energy.
