a great innovation that reduces the extraction of raw materials, such as oil!

« The partnership between the City and Pyrowave results from civic demand. Historically, citizens have placed these elements in the recycling bin. However, at the sorting centre, these different objects were removed as they were not recyclable. They ended up at the landfill. The goal is to divert these materials from garbage and the bin. »
