Conquista cartonera en Zárate
Written by FACCyR. 12/13/2018

After several months of discussions among recyclers’ cooperatives of Zárate (Argentina), which take part of FACCyR – CTEP, they got the local deliberative Council to pass a bill implementing a Socially Managed System of Recycling. The new regulation takes into account the need for public policies to consider the demands of waste pickers and the importance of differentiated systems of recycling.
