‘Let’s clean Drini River that joins US in Diber’
The area of SPA in Peshkopi it was very polluted and meanwhile this zone is the economical engine for the town –a lot of businesses are installed there. As the new Mayor was voted only one month before, we had a meeting with him, by presenting the US EPA team, REC Albania and GO2, and introducing the pilot project. He was very interested about the approach, and accepted to join us during the campaign of cleaning up at Llixha (SPA area). All the 60 workers of administration of waste management directorate were present and involved.
The businessmen took part and the Mayor was very unpleased about the situation he promised publicly to take in consideration the area by interfering there in action.
The young participants were very active and ready to tackle this problematic, by taking us in interview in Radio, delivering the posters in businesses there, and offering a waste bag as a symbol to raise awareness about the waste pollution in this zone. There were around 100 participants that joined to this event.
