Green AUCA: in 2 weeks, AUCA collected and handed over 327 kg of paper for recycling!

March 24, 2022



At the beginning of March, with the launch of the “Green AUCA" project, the initiators of the Center for Environment and Development (CED) and The Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) AUCA called on all offices and departments of the university to join the initiative.

Employees and professors wishing to join the initiative were tasked with picking up paper, electronic and plastic waste from their offices from March 7 to 20.

On March 22, the “Green AUCA” project team, including employees of the PPD and volunteers, visited all offices and departments and collected waste paper.

It is gratifying that 27 educational departments and offices took part in the initiative. In 2 weeks they collected a total of 327 kg of waste paper!

The waste paper was handed over on the same day for recycling to the “Alternative Trade” company. With the proceeds from the delivery of waste paper 4905 soms, the university will purchase stationery for departments and offices that took part in the initiative.

We thank all the participants for their activity, dedication, eco-awareness and willingness to make our AUCA "greener” and the surrounding world cleaner!

P.S. Electronic waste and plastic as waste that requires more time to accumulate, we will hand over for recycling in June.

The second delivery of paper for recycling is also planned for June - after the end of the academic year, so we ask offices and departments to continue collecting waste paper, focusing on this period.

This project is being implemented as part of the Pilot program "Improving the efficiency of the waste collection and processing system in the Kyrgyz Republic - WasteNet.Kg implemented by the Agency "CSR Central Asia" with the support of the International Fund "The Coca-Cola Foundation" This publication does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the pilot project WasteNet.Kg.
