separación de caminos/división de carretera


Explanation:
I propose the two options above as "face value" translations to the question you posed, but more context might be necessary to see how it relates to waste treatment specifically (if at all).

It's difficult for me if not included the surrounding context; anyhow a divider is a kind of instrument for measuring roads. Perhaps fits you.

Explanation:
Pues yo también que es difícil opinar "a ciegas", sin leer el contexto, pero en general "divider" se traduce como "divisor." También te sugiero "separador", "demarcador" o incluso, pensándo en algo más relacionado con treatments, podría ser "aislante." Más contexto, plz.
Saludos, MA.

Medianas


Explanation:
Hola,

En España llamamos Medianas a los separadores de sentido en una carretera/autopista.
Además, las medianas pueden ser un muro de hormigón o una zanja con plantas.

Espero que te ayude.
Suerte con el trabajo.
