This initiative is dedicated to the collection of plastic waste in 10 villages of Selenica municipality located on the shores of the Shushica River. So far, a large quantity of the domestic plastic waste of these villages were thrown into the river and ended up in the Adriatic Sea.
In cooperation with the municipal administration and village chairmen, a metal container will be placed in every village centre for the collection of plastic waste. The recyclable waste collection association of this area EMMAUS Valona will be involved in the project ??to make sure the plastic waste goes to a recycling plant.
In parallel, meetings will be organized with targeted village residents, pupils and teachers to inform them on the soil, rivers, seas and creatures contamination caused by unmanaged plastics. These meetings also aim to show them how to implement waste management in their homes and to use the special container.
