Bins for separate waste collection were provided to the University “Prof. Dr. Asen Zlatarov” and the Center for Young Talents, Burgas

Last week, within the BSB142 BioLearn project, sets of bins for separate waste collection (paper, plastic and glass) were provided at the University “Prof. Dr. Asen Zlatarov” and the Center for Young Talents in Burgas.
The aim is to increase responsibility, especially among the younger generation, for waste management through separate collection. The main focus of the project is the protection of significant wetlands in the Black Sea basin and the problem of their littering. In the coming weeks it is planned to provide five more sets of bins to public institutions in the region of Pomorie and Burgas. BioLearn project aims to raise public awareness for both the problems and the potential solutions related to waste threatening coastal wetlands and Black Sea. The target areas of the project include the Danube and Dnieper deltas in Ukraine; the wetlands of the Kolkheti National Park in Georgia; Lake Gala National Park in Turkey; The Delta of the Evros River (Maritsa) in Greece, as well as Pomorie Lake in Bulgaria – a wetland where Green Balkans has been working for almost a quarter of a century. Project BSB142 BioLearn is funded by the Joint Operational Program “Black Sea Basin 2014-2020” co-financed by the EU through the European Neighborhood Instrument and the participating countries: Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Moldova, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine.   For additional information: Irina Kirova tel: 0884 004 707; e-mail:
