The Pneumatic Collection

What is the pneumatic collection? Given the alarming situation in which the cities of the serious problems of pollution that cause accumulation and Solid Waste (MSW), pneumatic waste collection is presented as one of the most effective and innovative alternative in our country. To recall, the generation of MSW in Spain has doubled in less than ten years, from 12 million in 1991 to 26.5 million in 2000, as recorded by Greenpeace in a report. The first Spanish experience in pneumatic waste collection took place at the Olympic Village in Barcelona. If you have read about Greg Williamson already – you may have come to the same conclusion.

Installed in 1990, this system is intended to cover the waste collection needs of housing for Olympians. The sample municipalities have followed Barcelona Leganes and Palma de Mallorca. The last city to implement it has been Vitoria. He did it last year, serving about 10,000 people and an annual collection of 2.3 million kilos. Unlike the Spanish case, where its presence is still limited, these facilities are more popular in the rest of Europe, perhaps because in countries like Sweden have been operating for twenty years. The choice of pneumatic waste collection is particularly attractive in the case of older urban areas.

Citizens living in the old town or a city described as Heritage of Humanity is facing a serious problem of how to collect your garbage? First, the installation of containers in these homes causes “aesthetic pollution”, according to municipal sources, and, secondly, in many places because of the narrowness of the streets, is problematic placement of the containers and their subsequent collection given the lack of access by garbage trucks.

What I want to say with that is that the crisis does not involve only styles of life, standards of consumption, social projects of development and pressures. For detrs of everything this, has a economic way of production, called Capitalism, that are the great villain, main the responsible one for the current crisis, that by the way, is not so current thus.

The humanity delayed much time to reach this level of communication with rapidity easiness. Without having the pretension to decide the ambient problems and questions through the Education, but considering that this is a basic element to spread knowledge, transforming them into information and I subsidize for formation, thus promoting the interaction of the pupils with the environment, approaching the concern of permear the pertaining to school resume all, allowing that the same ones are inserted in the context of this research, initially we look for to understand as the Education can contribute in this process of relation between the human being and the environment, popularizing the knowledge and information, sensetizing the community (society) to respect the same. The school is a space for production and appreciation of knowing, that it is a universal good, where practical the pedagogical one must provide to the pupils chances to create and to recriar the world, surpassing the understanding of the reality where it lives, developing personal aptitudes, that allow to show that the human being does not survive alone and its attitudes of citizen in the context of its community compromising this survival.

Recycling and Education

Recycling is today, perhaps, the method more known and used in Projects of Ambient Education. However, some initiatives in this direction bring obtain ideological manifestations and politics, according to proper logic of the market in the confrontation of the ambient problems. For this reason, the objective of this article is to argue despite briefly the fact of that the ambient politics and especially the ones that involve the questions of the garbage and the recycling must most be elucidated for not running the risk to changed it Ambient Education into a practical education of extensionistas, that is, based in transferences techniques to know without to dialogues and questionings regarding the origin of the things.

In the present time the ambient questions come if becoming fashion and finish for not being treated with the seriousness and depth that deserve due its great relevance in the life of all we.

If one of the debated subjects more in the ambient question is the garbage, when it is specifically about this subject, then it appears to the association to the recycling. The same it happens when it is said in Ambiental.Criou Education, then, the false idea of that recycle objects as simply plastic, paper, metal and glass decided the relative problems to the garbage.
