Want To Start Waste Sorting In The Community

My apartment has a good waste management service, but the thing is I want it to be more efficient. I want to start a waste segregation system before all the other things go to the dumps. I sort out my wastes, but because its so hard to find recycling centers here, I end up throwing away the segregated stuff.
I have always been keen on being green, but it becomes difficult if everybody just mixes everything in the trash and the things I have sorted have to get mixed with all the trash.
I don't know exactly how to start. I tried talking to the management, but they also don't know how to start. So I'm sort of stuck, but I really want to help mother nature.
I have tried compost in my mini garden in the apartment, but its not ideal, or maybe I was just doing it wrong.
I really want to give my fair share to preserve the earth we live in, but I don't know how.

i believe in recycling too, but sometimes i dont throw things away i just use them again and again (such as glass jars, cardboard boxes, etc. i guess that has the same result?

same here. My sister and I love recycled crafts, and we use most of our bottles and cardboard stuff for crafts then give them away as gifts or something. It reduces the number of trash and turns something useless into something useful.
