Racks have appeared in the cemeteries in Tychy (Śląskie Voivodeship). Residents who visit their relatives’ graves can leave candles on the shelves that can be reused. “This will reduce the amount of waste, as well as the expenses of visitors to the cemeteries,” argues the municipality.
A dozen or so, sometimes several dozen hours – at this rate, the contribution to the candle in the cemetery burns out on average. The mixture of glass and plastic then becomes useless and ends up in the bin. But it doesn’t always have to be this way. The City Hall in Tychy boasted on social media about the zero waste solution that was implemented in local cemeteries.
Not to the basket, but to the bookcase
A few days ago, shelves for candles were placed in the cemeteries in Tychy. Only those that are still suitable for reuse may be left on the shelves. In this way, before placing candles on the graves of loved ones, you only need to buy a contribution to them.
“Thanks to the solution used in Tychy, the amount of waste, as well as the expenses of visitors to cemeteries, will decrease. Three bookshelves have been placed in the Wartogłowiec cemetery: at the gate from the bus terminus and at Cmentarna Street, as well as at the main and side gates from Oświęcimska Street. He also appeared at the cemetery on Barwna Street, next to the temporary main gate, “the magistrate said in a press release.
Tychy is not the first city to decide on funeral recycling. Previously, such a solution was decided by, among others: Kołobrzeg, Wodzisław Śląski and Polkowice.
