Participatory Plastic Clean Up and Waste Management in Lezha

This initiative started with the BELLS movement for awareness and advocacy on environmental issues and was followed by the project titled ‘Participatory Plastic Waste Cleaning and Waste Management in Lezha Municipality’ funded by the Embassy of the Netherlands and implemented by the Urban Research Institute and the Municipality. After the initial stage was set successfully, they also involved the Office for Swiss Cooperation through its decentralisation and local development programme. This made possible more funding and technical assistance for designing a new waste management scheme that includes separation of recyclable waste at the deposit source, capacity building and public-private partnership building at local level, and the establishment of the recycling centre.
