El pasado martes 12 de marzo de 2013 fui a visitar la Planta Insular de Residuos Sólidos en Tenerife, España. Fue muy interesante conocer todo el proceso de gestión de residuos que se realiza en la isla. Realizan clasificación de envases plásticos y la basura general. Esto es, los containers amarillos y verdes.
Dentro de mi linea de trabajo con los residuos como elemento artístico no pude evitar sentirme seducida por el colorido y el movimiento que se vivía dentro del recinto.
Nos cuentan que todo lo que se recicla se usa luego para generar otros productos. Al final del recorrido y de toda la información que nos dan los miembros y gerentes del centro tengo un pensamiento, ¿no sería mejor en lugar de reciclar no generar tantos residuos? Es decir, ¿no sería tal vez mejor reducir el consumo o cambiar los hábitos de consumo evitando los productos que generen tanto residuo?.

Por otro lado me quedo absolutamente fascinada con la cantidad de cosas que la gente tira al container de la basura común. Me sorprende la cantidad de juguetes infantiles, zapatos, mesas, bolsos…..

Todos los residuos que no se pueden clasificar acaban en el vertedero de Arico, en Tenerife. Un lugar que poco a poco se va llenando y que algún día no podrá albergar todo lo que tiramos indiscriminadamente en el container de basura común.

Last 12th march 2013 I went to visit the P.I.R.S of Tenerife (waste management plant), Spain. It was very interesting to see the process of recycling and the waste management on the island.

I am working with waste as an art concept, and I couldnt avoid to being seduced by the color and movement of the trash. I decided to make some photos and to work with some of them at the computer and create some works.

I was really amazed about the big amount of people who dont classify their trash. There were plenty kids toys, bags, umbrellas….
All the waste that is not well classify it goes to be buried in Arico, Tenerife, Spain, but there is not enough land to maintain this big amount of trash if the people continue generating so much trash.

At the end I asked myself if it wouldnt be better not to recycle but to reduce the mass consumption and to consume things that dont use so much waste packaging….
