Before the collection method existed, all this recycling was destined for the streets of the community and the swamp. Since 2021 we are moving our Eco Warehouse to the different villages to collect in areas from which it is not possible for the community to move to the physical point.

The collected material is compacted at our collection point, to be later sold to Ekored, Enka and Copacabana, the money we get from the sale of recycling is invested in the community.

In the first 5 months of 2022 we have collected 9.7 tons of PET and 0.13 tons of cardboard and other materials. In large part, this material could be collected thanks to Our ECO-Warehouse in which, thanks to donations we receive in kind, the community can exchange products for the home, kitchen, clothing, among others, for recycling.

2021 was a success! We managed to collect 12 tons of recyclable material! We achieved our goal of one ton per month! There are 12 tons of garbage that we managed to prevent from contaminating our swamp. Additionally we started 2022 with all our energy, in January we collected 2 tons of recyclable material!!!  
We continue with our Eco Store as a means for the community to exchange their garbage bottles for clothes, shoes, games or items for their home. 
 
With your donations we buy bottles from recyclers in the area and we also keep our Eco warehouse supplied. 
 
Help us with your donations to continue collecting recyclable material so it doesn’t end up in our beautiful swamp

Our Eco store is a success! In this store we sell clothes and household products and the community exchanges with PET bottles, the money doesn't exist.  The community feels identified with this project since they manage to obtain a benefit from their garbage and at the same time they make their town cleaner.  

We serve monthly an average of 140 people in our warehouse. Additionally, we are working with the recyclers in the area to buy them the PET so we are be able to give to the garbage the proper disposal.  
 
This year we have collected 9 tons of recyclable material!!!   All this material is compacted to be sent to the final disposal plants that are 8 hours away by road. If not, this material would end up in the Ayapel swamp, contaminating the water and nature. 

Help us with your donations to continue collecting recyclable material so it doesn’t end up in our beautiful swamp

During the first 5 months of the year 2021 we have collected 4.7 TON of PET and 0.6 TON of other materials such as cardboard.

This was done thank to a strategy of “exchanges” or exchanges of donations collected by CorpoAyapel, for bottles or recyclable material delivered by the community.

This new approach that began at the end of 2020 has allowed us a more active participation of the community accompanied by a great commitment and a sense of belonging.

In addition to this, CorpoAyapel has carried out several days of Cleaning of public and important areas for the community such as the Parque de la Luz. These days are held with the collaboration of the community.

The money from the sale of PET after compacting it, is reinvested in the community.
