Distribution of reusable masks


WHAT will be done


The action is part of the European prevention week between November 21 and 29, 2020. It concerns the most important priority within the hierarchy in waste management, which is waste prevention.

Due to the emergence of the health pandemic caused by Covid19 in our societies, new waste has been emerging that we have to deal with and, on the other hand, we have the need to convey to society the importance of its correct management. In this case, it is about gloves and, especially, masks that unfortunately have become part of our landscape, especially in our cities.

In order to work on this new reality, we consider that it is very important to acquire reusable masks as opposed to single-use ones. This activity of reduction in the generation of waste will try not to use a material that is not susceptible of recycling or recovery.

The action will focus on the distribution of 4,000 reusable masks up to 42 occasions and will be made available to the waste associations for delivery between subscribers of those entities.

The distribution in the following entities that are dedicated to the collection and management of household waste:

Commonwealth of Alto Araxes, Baztán City Council, Commonwealth of Bidausi, Bortziriak, Esca Salazar, Irati, Mairaga, Malerreka, Mendialdea, Montejurra, Ribera Alta, Ribera, Sakana, Sanguesa and Valdizarbe.
