"Academia Basura Cero" (ABC) was launched!

In the past, Basura Cero  Puerto Rico had achieved an alliance with the Metropolitan University to offer Continuing Education courses on the Recycling Industry. Due to reasons beyond our control, the program ceased to be offered. After Hurricane Maria, we became aware of the ongoing need in our archipelago for waste management. That's why we took on the task of creating the Academia Basura Cero (ABC). The Academy aims to educate the community through interactive workshops on how to establish a community-based waste management program to promote the development of resilient communities against future atmospheric events and to foster economic development through community entrepreneurship.

The first course focused on the management of organic waste (vegetable, edible, and wood waste). Enrolled students had the opportunity to learn about several existing projects that handle these types of waste and visited 2 local waste management companies. Both adults and children participated in this first academy. To watch the video, click HERE, and see the photos below.

"Dale Vida al Vidrio" Project will be expanded!

The Municipality of Manati has hired an employee to give this project the attention it deserves. They returned from vacation this week and have been meeting to update the MOU and establish two containers to expand our glass project, which is currently at a local hardware store, and to initiate door-to-door collection. One of our volunteers worked with the municipality, educating the community and preparing us for this expansion. Without your donations and support, this could not have been achieved! Please share this link with others to continue with our effort.

We have a Project Coordinator!

We are very pleased to announce that we have finally hired a project coordinator. The pandemic hindered our fundraising projects for our operations. The Board of Directors has been active in restructuring and reinventing ourselves. Thanks to a collaboration with the non-profit Mentes Puertorriqueñas, in the upcoming weeks, we will have a coordinator to assist us with daily tasks and projects.

¡Dale Vida al Vidrio se expande!

El municipio de Manati contrató a un empelado para brindarle toda la atención que merece este proyecto. Esta semana regreasan de vacaciones y ellos han estado reuniendose para actualizar el MOU y establecer dos contenedores para expandir el proyecto de vidrio que actualmente esta en ubicado en la Ferreteria e iniciar un recogido casa por casa. Uno de nuestro voluntario estuvo con el municipio educando a la comunidad preparandonos para esta expansión. Sin ustedes no se hubiese logrado esto. ¡Gracias, gracias y gracias! Comparte este enlace con otras personas para continuar con este esfuerzo.

¡Tenemos Coordinadora de Proyecto!

Estamos muy contentos de avisarles que finalmente hemos contrato a una coordinadora de proyecto. La pandemia nos dejo fuera del alcance de los proyectos con los que recaudamos fondos para nuestras operaciones. La Junta de Directores hemos estado muy activos restructurando y reinventandonos. Gracias a una colaboración con Mentes Puertorriqueñas en las proximas semanas tendremos una coordinadora para que nos ayude con todo el trabajo diario y agilizar los proyectos que tenemos y deseamos implementar.

¡La Academia Basura Cero fue lanzada!

En el pasado Basura Cero Puerto Rico habia logrado una alianza con la Universidad Metropolitada para ofrecer cursos de Educacion Continua sobre la Industria de Reciclaje. Por razones ajenas a nosotros, el programa dejo de ofrecerse. Con el paso del Huracan Maria nos dio cuenta de la necesidad que sigue existiendo en nuestro archipiealgo para el manejo de reisduos, es por esto que nos dimos la tarea de crear la Academia Basura Cero (ABC). La Academia procura educar a la comunidad con talleres interactivos sobre cómo establecer un programa de manejo de residuos con base comunitario para fomentar el desarrollo de comunidades resilientes ante futuros acontecimientos atmosféricos y promover el desarrollo económico mediante el empresarismo comunitario.

El primer curso estuvo enfocado en el manejo de residuos organicos (vegetal, comestible, madera). Los estudiantes matriculados tuvieron la oportunidad de conocer varios proyectos existente que manejan alguno de estos residuos, asi como visitar 2 empresas locales de manejo. Tanto grandes como chicos participaron de esta primera academia. Para ver video oprima AQUI y ver las fotos abajo
