The Councils of Health and Environment of the City of Totana continue these weeks the actions of the annual campaign of citizen awareness to promote the culture of recycling through the separation at source of light packaging and paper-cardboard, which will be developed with collaboration of Ecoembes under the title "Recycle and breathe".
This action is taking place during the information campaign and the main initiative that will be supported this year is the "Recycle and Win" contest, which will carry out public awareness tasks on the selective separation of waste.
With this campaign they want to show the benefits of recycling the waste that is deposited in the yellow container, in this case, cans, plastic containers and bricks, both in the protection of air quality and in the care of the environment ambient.
The aim is to teach the correct separation of the containers in the clean points for their subsequent recycling and to encourage a positive and critical attitude that leads to a decrease in the generation of waste, transmitting the importance of a responsible consumption of environmental resources and adopting behaviors and sustainable habits.
The "Recycle and win" contest, held until November 28, serves to award participating citizens a prize in reward for the effort made from their homes separating these waste (plastic containers, cans, bricks, cardboard, paper , newspapers, magazines, etc.) for later deposit in the corresponding container.
To do this, a participation card is delivered to people who go to the Mobile Green Point (mobile information point PIM and containers for the recycling of packaging and cardboard) with their waste and deposit it correctly.
Interested users will deposit the card, duly filled in with their name and phone number, in an urn in which they will collect all the participants of the contest, so that the PIM will travel during these dates different points of the urban area, of 10 : 00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the indicated days.
The sites during the campaign that remain are the San Francisco street (next fairground), on 23 and 26;
and Plaza de la Constitución, on the 27th and 28th of the same month.
During these dates, an environmental educator will inform in the PIM of the procedure of the contest at the time that will carry out works of sensitization on the environmental and selective separation of waste.
Next to the PIM, the yellow and blue containers (light containers and paper-cardboard) will be found for the deposit of waste, so that a card will be delivered for each bag deposited.
Therefore, the more bags are deposited in the containers, the contestants get more shares and more chances of obtaining the prize, which will consist of a one-night stay for two people in a three-star hotel in a spa in the Region of Murcia , in full board (this stay will have to be enjoyed during the months of January and February 2019).
In addition, all citizens who participate in the contest receive a yellow or blue raffia bag as a gift for their participation and for separation at home.
The extraction of the winning card will be held on Friday, December 14, in the plenary hall of the Totana City Council, and will have the presence of citizens who so wish and political leaders of the relevant municipal areas.
