School recycling program trains 200 children and installs recycling collection system



The Recicla Escuela (School Recycling) program, supported by Fundación Avina and led by the organization VERSE, trained 200 children and 3 teachers from an under-resourced school in Santiago on the importance of inclusive recycling.

The program also installed a recycling system in the school to collect PET, aluminum, and paper, which to date has recovered about 130 pounds of recyclable material.

These materials are then donated directly to a local recycling cooperative, Cooperativa de Recicladores de La Reina (CREACOOP).
