Since 2009, the Ümraniye Municipality helps both the environment and the economy in its recycle collection from the municipality’s residences, businesses and schools. Collecting an annual average of 10 thousand tons of waste in packaging, the municipality provides the necessary action needed in recycling the waste into raw materials.

The Municipality of Ümraniye has continued its environmentally friendly municipal work, whether it be through the green space it has gained to the municipality and its work in conserving existing green space, or with seminars on environmental consciousness carried out in schools, businesses, or apartment complexes. Carried out with the same purpose, the Municipality’s Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation approved “The Management and Implementation of Ümraniye Municipality’s Packaging Waste Plan” continues its work in collecting the district’s waste. In order to reduce the damage done to the environment, work done with licensed companies contracted to recycle, in various ways, the collected out-of-use recyclable waste materials in the residential areas of the district covers materials such as glass, medical/chemical waste vegetable and mineral oils, electronic devices, batteries, and rubber. Distinctions made concerning the collection and classification of waste material constitutes an important step in the recycling process:
