The patron of World Recycling Day is GREEN Logistics CZ s.r.o. - the operator of take-back points for end-of-life tyres/car batteries or accumulators, where the end user can drop off waste tires/car batteries or accumulators free of charge, regardless of the make or date their introduction to the market, without being tied to the purchase of a new tyre/car battery or accumulator and without the right to payment for this collection.


Although recycling does not directly protect the environment, it does prevent its damage. Recycling saves resources, reduces energy consumption, emissions, and water usage in the production of new items. Therefore, recycling is key to a better future for our planet and humanity as a whole.
Recycling is the process of managing waste that leads to its further use. It involves the cyclic reuse of waste and its properties as secondary raw materials in the production process. Recycling is about bringing the material back into the production cycle, transforming it from otherwise unusable waste into a secondary input material usable in further production. Recycling allows for the conservation of renewable and non-renewable resources and often reduces the burden on the environment. The main benefits of recycling are the reduction in the need for new resource extraction, the use of waste instead of landfilling, and overall environmental conservation.
