Promote recycling

The goal of the aforementioned network is to promote recycling in the day-to-day life of primary schools, with special emphasis on involving the entire educational community (teachers, non-teaching staff and students), who are offered training and materials for facilitate the separation of waste.

The program also provides great added value thanks to the personalized advice that the team of environmental educators of 'Ecoembes' offers to each center, providing training to the entire educational community on their role to achieve a more sustainable school.

In this way, both professors and cleaning teams, bedeles or kitchen and dining staff receive guidance on how to integrate waste separation into their daily tasks.

Specifically, each Murcia deposited 10 kilos in the yellow container (cans, briks and plastic containers) and 10.4 kilos in the blue (paper and cardboard containers), or what is the same, 917 containers per inhabitant were deposited in the yellow container and 427 in the blue, an increase with respect to 2015 of 8'7% and 11'8%, respectively.
