The city of Ra'anana is expanding its recycling work and recently finished placing 60 new containers for the collection of batteries and 20 new containers for the collection of compact disks in streets around the city, reports www.mynet.co.il. The containers have been set up next to existing bottle-collection bins to encourage residents to increase their recycling efforts. According to the report, Ra'anana is one of the leading cities in Israel in its environmental activities, and was the first Israeli city to begin recycling disks, diskettes, plastic bags and expired medicines this year, the last item in conjunction with the Superpharm pharmaceutical chain, which is allowing residents to return medicines that have passed their use-by dates to its stores. The city also recently expanded its recycling of unwanted electric and electronic objects in conjunction with the Elwyn Israel non-profit organization, which runs a special-needs activity center at which the workers take the electronic items apart for sale to industry as raw parts. The report said the city also finished installing paper recycling bins in all apartment buildings over the past year, and that 89.4 tons of paper were collected in the city between January and June this year, compared with 20.6 tons in the same period last year.
