The main purpose of No Waste Ukraine (Ukrayina Bez Smittya) social project is to improve the conditions of environment, involving citizens into waste sorting. Sorting unloads landfill sites and contributes into development of recyclable materials processing market in Ukraine. Nowadays, the project activity areas are far beyond resolving waste problem, and include drinking water quality, clearness of air in cities, hazardous emissions in natural water reservoirs as well as many other ones.
No Waste Ukraine eco community was established in 2015 with efforts of volunteers. After 7 months, it has turned into official social enterprise. The purpose of the community is to eliminate social problem and to earn money for introducing projects related to promotion and implementation of real waste sorting methods in Ukraine. No Waste Ukraine eco community looks toward building up an effective dialog with government in order to achieve goals faster and to start system changes for the benefit of clean and safe environment.
