ECOPACK – PARTNER IN THE “LET’S CLEAN BULGARIA FOR A DAY” CAMPAIGN

The largest packaging waste recovery organization ECOPACK Bulgaria is an active partner in the “Let’s clean Bulgaria for a day” campaign.

ECOPACK also took part in bTV’s “Pure Knowledge” initiative prior the main campaign with educational and informational activities aiming to show people that the separately collected waste is really being recycled and everyone’s actions contribute to the preservation of nature.

Only plastic and metal packaging waste can be collected in the yellow sacks, such as:

Plastic bottles, plastic cups, plates, yoghurt buckets and milk bottles, tubes and bottles from cosmetic and sanitary products, nylon, bottle cases as well as metal bottle lids and soda cans. The packaging should be relatively clean before being collected. If they are too soiled with food leftovers, grease and mud they should go to the black sacks for domestic waste. 

Other kinds of domestic waste that should not be thrown into the yellow sacks are: soiled paper, food, fags, vegetal waste (branches, grass, and bushes), furniture components, ceramic vessels, flat glass, batteries, electrical appliances and so forth. Such waste should be thrown into the black sacks.

The full yellow sacks should be left beside or next to the yellow containers in the giveaway points’ areas or in the other city areas. ECOPACK will transport them from these points to the sorting facilities and recycling factories.

Data about the collected waste and saved resources will be provided upon ending of the initiative.

Let’s clean Bulgaria for a day!
