In Kharkov, during the Zoom-conference of the mayor of the city, Gennady Kernes, the youth discussed the possibility of creating an eco-complex Recycling station. Thanks to this complex, one can popularize the idea of ​​sorting garbage among residents of apartment buildings in the city of Kharkov.
“It is planned to open a large eco-space with three zones – a workshop where people will make products from plastic (cups, trinkets, etc.), a public waste sorting station and an eco-literacy training zone,” said the head Youth Council at the Kharkov mayor Dmitry Davidyants.
In turn, the mayor of Kharkov, Gennady Kernes, supported the initiative and offered his help in the correct implementation of this project.
“It is very important for us that young people feel that they are being helped and given the opportunity to realize their abilities. If we do not create such opportunities, the youth will leave, look for themselves elsewhere, ”said Gennady Kernes.
This project has become one of the winners of the city program “Public Budget”.
“The project provides for the acquisition and installation of MAF, whose activities are aimed at: procuring more than 30 types of waste as secondary raw materials; station personnel serving the adjacent waste generators in order to maximize the extraction of resource-valuable components from the total mass of solid waste; conducting outreach to the population living and working within the radius of the station, ”the project description says.
