Cecilia Vargas, president of Burgues cooperative that develops its activities in Montevideo and UCRUS all over Uruguay. And Matías Lescano and Evange Ojeda, representing Argentina with El Ceibo RSU.
It is the continuity of an exchange of experiences of several years that began in 2010 in “Galpón de Corrales” in Montevideo, with the commitment to improve the quality of life of a population with serious difficulties in its economic development, take care of the environment, generate activities that enhance recycling initiatives in our Latin American region and dignify the work of urban recyclers; that the states in the region contribute to a new stage in entrepreneurship such as understanding recycling as an industry to improve production in the different waste recovery plants managed by cooperatives, in this way they are betting heavily on achieving more and more sustainable cities, a challenge for the cooperatives of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The environmental issue is everyone’s commitment.
