Separate Waste Collection in Schools

The pilot project ”Separate Waste Collection in schools” is a part of the ”Keep it Clean” plan following the ”World Clean-up Day” by Hai Moldova & EcoVisio. It’s purpose is to test separate waste collection in 10 different schools throughout Moldova, from all the regions: 2 schools from the North, 3 from the Center, 2 from the South and 3 from Chisinau. Of these, 3 schools are from villages.

The project consists of the following stages:

1. October - November 2018: A public call was made where schools could apply and 10 schools were selected: from Bălți, Făleștii Noi, Ungheni, Chișinău, Doroțcaia, Rîșcova, Leova și Tărăclia. One of the most important criteria of selection was the existence of a company that could evacuate the trash to be later recycled.

2. November 2018: A training where 2 pupils and one teacher from each selected school were motivated and instructed on ways to coordinate the separate waste collection in their schools.
