Reducing of emission of PoPs with reducing of plastic packages with recycling in Gevgelija and Bogdanci
The general objective of the project is to reduce the quantities of POPs through sustainable management of solid municipal and agricultural plastic waste.
Target objective are:
1. Strengthening the capacity of associations, local communities and schools to implement the project, conducting action planning of green business, on training and workshops.
2. Educating young people about the harmful effects of plastic waste and POPs on human health and land, through games, competitions and lectures in class.
3. Educating young people and the citizens for primary selection and collection of PET bottles in households and schools and foil from agriculture, through discussions and flyers dissemination.
4. Selective collection and sale of PET plastic bottles and PVC / LDPL foils as a secondary raw material, which contirbute to the economic interests and development of local non-profit public institutions, by bags, containers and transport.


Acheivement of goals will close the system for waste treatment in 2 municipalities Gegelija and Bogdanci, helping the existing waste management practice with constant primary separation of waste from garbage. During implementation of this project the population acquires practice/awareness to select waste and refrain from throwing mess in greenery, which indirectly affects public awareness of environmental hygiene. The project creates a functional system of organized collection, purchase, processing and sale of waste plastics/ foil in cities that will generate revenue for our association and schools. On the other side the project will teach schools to think outside the planned budget. The impact of the project is reflected in stimulated socialization and self organization of people, staff, parents and pupils in schools and local communities, through a series of activities. The project opens up new employment conditions and financial boost to all involved parties.
