INSTALLATION OF BINS IN MAVROVO

In order to selectively dispose the waste in the ski center "Zare Lazarevski", Pakomak in January invested in the communal infrastructure in Mavrovo, installing bins for selected garbage disposal for the visitors.

Pakomak will continue to expand the communal infrastructure in more regions in the Republic of Macedonia in order to develop the environmental awareness, but also to make the sorting and recycling of waste more accessible.

PAKOMAK WITH ECO-ACTION IN SCHOOLS

The big clean-up action, which Pakomak conducted in collaboration with the elementary schools in municipalities Karposh and Kisela Voda, resulted in gathering a large number of bottles.

The students from the municipality Karposh, in less than three months, managed to collect more than 200 thousand plastic bottles for recycling, while the students from Kisela Voda collected around 50 thousand in just a month.

The latest municipality to join this action is Gazi Baba which has 11 elementary schools and two regional ones. In the bins and containers installed by Pakomak, they will collect plastic bottles and will receive liquid soap and hygiene assets in return. Pakomak gave sports equipment - balls for basketball and volleyball to all schools involved in the project. In addition, this project has competitive - motivating effect, because the school that will collect most plastic bottles within a specific period of time will be rewarded with a one-day excursion from "Pakomak" at the end of the year.

The goal of this project is to create healthy environmental habits and so far has been accepted by the teachers, children and parents from all schools. Based on the interest and effects, we are on the right way for this project to become sustainable.

ECO-ACTION: THOUSAND WHITE ROSES IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS AND THE ZOO

As part of the action "Skopje-city of flower, Skopje-city of rose" in more than 33 primary schools which received donation of liquid soap, and in Skopje Zoo, were planted over 1,000 white roses as a donation from Pakomak. For a successful and long-lasting eco-action, the students along with their teachers are taking care of the white roses.

This action was triggered because the studies have shown that roses are good pullers of heavy metals from the soil and major refinements of the ambient air.

Pakomak, with the action for planting white roses, continues his activities among the young population to develop their environmental awareness and to develop care for the environment.

EDUCATING THE YOUNGEST FOR HYGIENE

In the primary schools across municipalities Karpos, Kisela Voda and Gazi Baba in Skopje, Pakomak put educational posters right next to the liquid soap boxes. The posters visually present the right procedure for washing hands.

Placed in the school toilets, these posters help the children to properly maintain their personal hygiene, but in the same time educate them for the importance of saving water as a limited resource in the nature.

PROGRAM FOR SUPPRESSION AND PREVENTION OF MAKING WASTE PACKAGING

As PAKOMAK customers have already been informed, in accordance with Article 7, paragraph 2 of the Law for managing packaging and packaging waste, any legal entity which cumulatively has more than 30 tons packaging and packaging waste per year, has a legal obligation to prepare program for suppression and prevention of making waste packaging. This free program was developed by Pakomak and it was delivered during February and March for those customers who have applied for it. This program explains in details the obligations that companies have, in accordance with the Law for managing packaging and packaging waste, and ways of respecting the Law.

GREEN DOT – TRADEMARK OF PAKOMAK THAT CARES FOR THE NATURE

Green Dot is a licensed mark of the international company PRO-Europe, which gives information to the consumer that the product packaging will be recycled. Worldwide there are 130,000 companies who have joined this program, and in Macedonia, Pakomak has the exclusive rights over Green Dot.

All our clients receive the Green Dot mark thus they categorize as socially-responsible companies that care about the environment. With the Green Dot program worldwide, 14.7 million tons were recycled, from which our 570 member companies and we have contributed with more than 7,300 tons of recycled waste.

Companies that are not part of the Pakomak system and want to use this sign, will have to pay a fee, or will have to join the Pakomak system and continue to use this sign for free.

Pakomak in the following period, through the association for intellectual property BERIN, will inform all the companies that are using the sign without authorization for their legal obligations.

PAKOMAK RESULTS FOR YEAR 2012

As a leader in the management of packaging waste in Republic of Macedonia, Pakomak counts over 570 client members, among which include major domestic and international companies. More than 170 of them are new members.

By November 2012, over 40,000 tons of waste was collected in the Pakomak system, from which 7352 tons were recycled. This exceeded the legal national targets and recycling company took 22% more packaging waste from the law requests.

The Companies can be sure in the future that they comply with the law on packaging and packaging waste because the green mission of Pakomak continues...

UNDERGROUND CONTAINERS IN SKOPJE

Pakomak donated underground containers for selective waste disposal of packaging to the City of Skopje and the Communal hygiene.

With the activation of these containers, the communal infrastructure in the city has significantly improved. At the same time, these containers increased the amount of collected and recycled packaging waste.
