If you answered " They are totally different, but with the same propose" CONGRATULATIONS! It’s the correct answer!

Although two different stages in waste management, they are often mixed-up and used as the same concept.

When we talk about recycling, we are referring to the process of transforming materials, which are no longer useful (waste), into new materials, usually through an industrial process, for instance glass recycling.

The separation (sorting) is the placement of the various types of materials that appear in our household waste in different containers, that is sorted. For example, paper and cardboard should be put in the blue container. To recycle materials properly, sorting is critical.

Different concepts that are complementary. So, don't forget: Sort, we are headed for recycling!
