 A brand new recycling plant has begun collecting the garbage of some 1 million residents of the Jerusalem region – the fruits of a NIS 100 million investment in state-of-the-art waste technologies. 

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and Environmental Protection Minister Avi Gabbay inaugurated the Greennet recycling plant on Tuesday afternoon in the capital city's Atarot industrial zone, alongside the factory's owners and CEO. Aiming to rank among the most advanced recycling facilities in the world, the recycling plant makes use of the newest technologies in order to perform automatic separation of household waste, according to the municipality.   
"The plant that we established will mark Jerusalem as a leader of the green revolution in Israel, with household waste sorting without human intervention, saving a lot of money and the possibility to transform waste into an energy resource," Barkat said.
