Once recovered, packaging waste is sent to secondary raw material production facilities (recycled paper, recycled plastic, metals and glass). Secondary materials are used either for the same products from which they originate or for other more sophisticated products. In any case, virgin raw materials are substituted.
Paying particular attention to the education of children and the shaping of an environmental consciousness, HE.R.R.Co organizes specialized educational programs, approved by the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs.
With the approval of the Primary and Secondary Education Departments of the Ministry of Education and Research, HERRCO implements the educational program “Recycling in Schools – Changing Behaviors”. In order to raise the awareness of pupils in primary and secondary schools, specially designed blue bins are placed inside the schools and in the same time special educational presentations are organized so that students can understand the importance of the participation in packaging recycling through the blue bin and also be informed about the multiple benefits to society and municipalities.
The “Learn how to properly recycle the Blue Bin” program is approved by the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs. It aims to teach children in Primary Schools the correct way to participate in packaging recycling through the blue bin network. The material of the program consists of five thematic training modules which, with the assistance of the analytical instructions provided, can be developed by the teacher in the classroom. The blue bin turns into a hero – ambassador of recycling and in a pleasant, creative and experiential manner reveals to the children the secrets and benefits of recycling.
As part of the program, these training packages were sent to all Primary Schools in the country and a specially designed website www.mplekas.com, where the teacher can find the complete training material for recycling packaging in the blue bin and the children can use material for creative work, has been developed.
