Summer 2013 Community Refuse Program a Success

The final stages of the refuse oven.
The final stages of the refuse oven.

For the past four weeks, Atlas Cultural Foundation and local association Amezray SMNID implemented the first stages of a long term community garbage program. In partnership with Montana State University we built a refuse oven, spent six days in the tutoring program doing garbage education with elementary school students and more.

The efforts are the first stage of a future zero waste program. We also interviewed community memeber, shop owners, mountain guides, guesthouse owners and women heads of household on their beliefs and challenges with garbage. This information will be developed into the long term plan of the refuse program.

Zawiya Ahansal has a unique opportunity to skip over the usual refuse problems rural developing regions have. We hope to go straight to beliefs of recycling and reuse.

Here are a few pictures of our efforts.
