Abstract

The complexity of the environmental problem handles very hard numbers and is that 30% of the world's population does not have access to adequate sanitation services, 70% of the waste is still buried in landfills, 70% of collection logistics Of waste is not sustained with the collected waste requires collection from the generator, the global average of collection of urban solid waste reaches 73.6%, 33% of urban solid waste is packaging from mass consumption products and this is Adds to the ignorance that each person generates on average about 40 tons of waste during his life.

All these data represent a direct environmental impact on our unique planet, perhaps generated by the lack of recycling strategies, return and extended responsibility or simply the continuation of policies aimed at an obsolete economy line. This problem implies that from a final disposal of waste, more than 40 diseases proliferate, impacting more than 106 million people who lack access to adequate sanitation in Latin America and the Caribbean alone.

REDIR the Intelligent Recycling Network has been working with the concept of connecting waste with people before they are generated, monetizing recycling in the present and future. The objective of the proposal is that waste and classified, collected, returned and recycled materials will cancel the logistic cost itself, in addition to generating shared residual income, triggering in people the interest of recycling packaging, packaging and packaging from pre-consumption , Consumption and post consumption by committing them to the planet.
