Press release December 21th, 2021 Finnish Environment Institute SYKE
SYKE found out where the recyclable waste ends up from the households of the small North Karelian municipality of Juuka. Waste is a valuable raw material and recycling has many positive environmental impacts. Although transport journeys can be long and cause CO2 emissions, the use of waste as a raw material for new products is more environmentally beneficial than making them from natural resources and other primary raw materials.
