Recycling Day

To highlight the importance of recycling the Antas Council arranged to present a number of special paper and plastic containers to the local college.

Councillors Maria Jesús Aznar and Felix Rodriguez, chose that particular date because it coincided with International Recycling Day.

They hoped that by making this a public statement, they would help to foster environmental awareness and promote sustainable practices among young people.

Recycling company Ecoembes, has made these containers available so that students and teachers can properly separate paper and plastic waste, making it easier for recycling.
