This morning, the mayor of the municipality, Mariola Guevara and the representative of the non-profit association Abraham Project, Antonia Villarino, have extended, once again, the collaboration agreement they have been maintaining since 2011.
The objective of the agreement is the implementation of a selective collection system for textile, footwear and toy waste to contribute to the development and improvement of measures in favor of the preservation of the environment.
Project Abraham works to boost economic and industrial development to encourage the creation of recycling and production of jobs and, finally, transform waste into a resource with which to provide shelter in housing, training, employment, assistance to development, support and support for groups at risk or social exclusion.
The Consistory is once again committed to collaborate in communication campaigns and give voice to the objectives set by the association, as well as to facilitate the installation of containers where textile, footwear and toys can be deposited for later collection and grant authorization for occupation of public roads by these vessels and eradicate possible false campaigns to collect clothes that may occur in the municipality.
Abraham Project is being responsible for the collection of the items deposited in the containers, the maintenance of them, the resolution of possible incidents that may occur, the development of dissemination and information campaigns, as well as making available to the City Council the offer of training workshops that develops it.
The association has a total of 24 containers distributed between the municipality and districts where any neighbor can deposit, clothing, footwear and toys so that these result, again, in the people who need it most.
