Improving recycling in Kannapolis

Local authorities in Kannapolis emphasized that the challenge for 2022 must be to increase performance through sustained awareness-raising, reminder of instructions, investigation of satisfaction. A campaign to display and distribute pre-collection bags in vertical habitat is to be extended and renewed. More regular checks will be put in place by quality supervisors to ensure the effectiveness of the work of our collection and sorting service providers.

However, this information work must be completed in view of the wishes expressed through this survey in particular on:
– the fate of waste: 61% of responses do not know the destination of the recycled material;
– the usefulness of sorting: 35% still do not know what the value of sorting is;
– other corresponds to those who want additional information on the utility of a recycling center: 4%.

Will this process be enough for citizens to make sorting actions an automatism and not a constraint? Nothing is less certain because if we judge based on the reflections of some individuals in vertical habitat.

According to a recent survey 68% of Kanapolis residents say they sort their waste against 32% who are recalcitrant, either for lack of motivation, or that a certain a number of factors objectively limit this practice.

Some use bin rental in Kannapolis when they do a home renovation, a Spring cleanout or if they want to get rid of old furniture and jun from their garage. Such waste management practices help reduce pollution and wastage, as some of these materials can be recycled.

In fact, sorting at home in collective apartments means that tenants must first sort some of their waste and they must drop off either in front of their building or in specific premises. Consequently, we can integrate the notion of distance insofar as there is a distance that interferes between the individual and the place where the waste is deposited.

In front of the presence of the refuse chute which is practical, the inhabitant does not face the problem of distance but as part of sorting at source, it must make an additional effort.

The “encouraged” change can also be seen as a constraint, and there are many arguments and excuses for not wanting to change. Also, in some buildings in the county, sorting is no longer relevant as some citizens do not hesitate to throw leftover food in the “clean and dry waste” bin.

Faced with these recalcitrant sorting, the dumpster haulers do not no longer wish to collect bins.

In vertical housing, tiled outdoor shelters equipped with a water point accommodate household waste and this room may, when the selective collection has started, make possible the storage of sorted waste.

However, here this structure, which is an element of street furniture, makes the landscape ugly; in any case, “visual pollution” should put off the user. Indeed, each detail counts for the success of this waste management operation.
