Construccion del centro de acopio

Finalmente hemos comenzado la construcción de nuestro centro de acopio!! La comunidad está participando para lograr este gran desafío.

Finally we have started building the recycling centre! The community is helping to accomplish this great challenge.

After several years and numerous charity challenges, the building has finally begun. The community of Punta Allen Verde is heavily involved and through completion, it will become an example to the rest of the region. All the plastic, metal and glass collected will be sold thus gaining revenue to fund and maintain the recycling centre.

We are currently building compost containers with plastic bottles as can be seen from the photos. Volunteers were also involved in creating unique recyclable items for their Environmental Day Exhibition to show how such items can be used! A disco ball out of tetra-packs (milk cartons), beermats (coasters) out of bottle caps, magnets out of beer tops, key chains and jewellery out of water bottles and beer cans were just a few of the items created!

Thank you to all our supporters who have made this happen. We are very much in need of additional funds to continue the construction work on the centre.
