UAB Žalvaris Vision
We believe that all generated hazardous and non-hazardous waste can be collected and handled. Our aim is to ensure that functioning of our waste collection system is effective and that we are able to collect the largest quantities of waste which would later be converted into valuable raw materials.
All collected waste is safely managed or recycled obtaining from recycled waste materials reused in the manufacturing of different equipment and items resulting in reduction of environmental pollution and saving of natural resources.
In planning the long-term perspective of our Company we expect that waste recycling technologies we expect to implement along with competent specialists will help our Company to become a leader of waste collection both in Lithuania and outside it.
