Inclusive Recycling: First community-based recycling plant opens in Mendoza



The first “Centro Verde” (Green Center) in Mendoza is equipped to separate, process, compress, and market recyclable materials. Using a “green points” system, the center is able to process 5 tons of material per day, or up to 1,500 tons per year. The building of the center was a collaborative project led by Cooperativa de Recuperadores Mendoza (COREME), the city government of Las Heras, and Aguas Danone de Argentina.
