Workshop: Preparation of Situation Analysis-Strumica

14.04.2013, Strumica

On 14th of April 2013 in Hotel “Ilinden” - Strumica, was held the first workshop on the topic "Preparation of Situation Analysis." The workshop aimed to introduce the members of the Working Group with defining the activities related to research and field visits with the need of data-base for informal waste collectors. The workshop was facilitated by Anne Scheinberg -expert in the field of plastic recycling and work with informal collectors around the world. She presented the situation and legal framework in the European countries and gave examples of waste management there. At this workshop attended representatives of the Working Group in Strumica, which is established from representatives of NGO Planetum Strumica, Informal collectors, Waste Management Companies and Public Communal Enterprise of Strumica. During the workshop, the participants identified the following problems: PCE Strumica hasn’t got enough capacity for employment of all informal collectors from the municipality, while Informal collectors agreed on the need for protective equipment at work. The Working Group came with a conclusion that there is a need of cooperation between Public and Private sector for mutual activities/ solutions which will contribute to improve the situation of the informal waste collectors i.e. will contribute to their formalization and inclusion into the waste management system. This workshop was held within the project “Inclusion of informal Roma waste collectors into the formal waste schemes” financed by the European Union , through the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, in implementation of MDC -Ti.NET, Skopje,with the partners Planetum - Strumica , Avena- Kocani and Regional entreprise support centre – Skopje.
