Goal by 2024:
We have started the circular practice of recycling used packaging for milk and juice into hygienic paper (paper towels and toilet paper) in 2015. Firstly in the Javni Holding Ljubljana and all public companies, later also in the city administration and public institutions. With the introduction of the practice, we are directly supporting the implementation of circular business models and are shifting from waste management to resource management. By participating in MMC we are strengthening Ljubljana's recognition as a green, sustainable and circular-oriented European capital.
Zala Strojin Božič, M.Sc., Circular economy manager
Ljubljana is the European capital with the highest share of separately collected waste (68.7%), and an example of good practice on a European and global scale. Besides, the cost of waste management is among the lowest in the country. Ongoing activities also involve the modernisation of infrastructure – currently, there are 69 underground waste collection points installed in the wider city centre, which have replaced more than 8,500 conventional collection containers – and the introduction or upgrade of activities that apply the principles of Zero Waste and the circular economy. Our responsibility is realised not only through meeting regulatory requirements and reliable and expected services, but through much more ambitious activities and goals: we strive to actively assume our role in the environment where the linear economic model changes into circular, and where only the highest possible quality of service is acceptable.
The company is committed to finding new solutions and improvements, in order to reduce environmental pollution, increase recycling and recovery rate, and consequently significantly reduce the amount of waste disposal. With this policy, we have a major impact on product life cycle - we extend it, while maintaining natural resources. The circular economy is based on the concept of a rotating material cycle, which means that waste materials are processed for their reuse, and consequently, the amounts of disposed of or incinerated waste are reduced.
Slopak is a responsible packaging waste management company that ensures that the life cycle of products is closed, which is why we are one of the key stakeholders in the circular economy. We provide a system for collecting, recovering and recycling packaging and non-packaging products, which enables the reuse of secondary raw materials for the production of new products and reduces the impact on the environment. With our knowledge and professionalism, we are building a more sustainable society, and above all, we are looking to the present and the future. Therefore, our mission is also to raise public awareness of the importance of proper waste separation and to encourage environmental protection.
We are on the verge of major economic transition. The global economic system is changing from linear to circular. The simplest way for companies and institutions to enter the circular economy is to start using hygienic tissue paper from their own material cycle. VALTEX is a pioneer in the practical implementation of the circular economy in Slovenia, and willingly cooperates, and provides advice and assistance in this respect.
