About 600 children study at the lyceum and 70 teachers work

In the Rivne region in Containers for sorting and separate collection of recyclable materials were installed at Dubensky Lyceum No. 1.

Now children and teachers will be able to sort paper, plastic, glass, metal, as well as polyethylene, says Inna Yatsina's post in the Facebook community "Charitable organization "Volunteers on Kontorska".

"Teachers and the principal raise students' eco-awareness, teach them to sort garbage," she wrote.

Yatsyna noted that such eco-conscious actions will help teach lyceum students to perceive garbage as a resource.



"Remember that waste can be turned into money, and money into quadcopters," she added.

As you know, about 600 children study at the lyceum and 70 teachers work.

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that garbage sorting containers were installed in 10 schools and kindergartens in Volyn in the Horokhiv community. This will help improve the environmental situation and teach children the importance of garbage sorting and waste recycling.
