Summary/Abstract: In this article, the author promotes the idea of non-accumulating of waste, which is one of the essential principles of modern ecology and modern recycling art, because care for the environment should not bypass artists or people of any other profession. For an artist who does not accept life in dead landscape, who completely accepts ecological requirements of his time, it is not at all unusual to engage in recycling art, to investigate waste and different art possibilities the waste offers. An artist is free to decide what his creation will be made of and, therefore, freedom to place the destiny of a discarded object in his sphere of interest. Artists who have never felt passionate about waste wk are definitely not for the recycling art, maybe not even for urban life.
