About the project

AO "Association for Waste Recovery", will implement during the period 01.09.2020 - 31.08.2021, the project "Management of solid waste through the active involvement of the community" in 6 localities from the Străseni district (Străseni municipality, Scoreni village, Lozova commune, Vorniceni village, Negrești village and Sireți village). The project is part of the Local Grants Program within the "Ability of citizens in the Republic of Moldova" project, financed by the European Union and implemented by GIZ Moldova.

By launching this project, AVD aims to directly contribute to increasing community awareness and participation in order to reduce the impact of waste on the environment and health. Obviously, it is not an easy task, rather a challenge, but through coordinated and well-planned actions, we want to succeed together with the target beneficiary groups of the project (inhabitants of the targeted communities, teachers, librarians, students, LPAs, NGOs ures, sanitation operators, economic agents, etc.) gradually reducing the amount of waste reaching the landfill, increasing the share of selectively collected recyclable waste and of course increasing the number of citizens, who will contribute to improving the quality of sanitation services by honoring the obligation to pay for these services.

During the implementation of this project, AVD, together with the team of experts involved, carried out various activities aimed directly at strengthening the community's capacities in the correct management of generated waste.
