We conducted information campaigns to motivate residents of the municipalities served by us to dispose separately and protect the environment. And the result is: active citizens who understand the meaning of our motto “I can be” – i.e. waste can be a new raw material for the industry, and we can become better every day by preserving nature, saving resources and energy and making the world beautiful.
