The “Places Gone” project maps places in Slovakia where waste ends or gets a second chance.
More than 12 million tonnes of waste are produced in Slovakia every year, of which 2.3 million tonnes are municipal waste.
We do not see landfills, incinerators, collection yards, recycling lines or wastewater treatment plants in everyday life, but they exist. But what do they look like, are these places invisible, and does it really matter where our waste ends up? We have decided to bring these places closer with this project, which talks about the life of the waste behind the container, highlights the need to perceive waste as part of life and draws attention to its impact.
The project was created thanks to the support of the Tesco Foundation Fund.
