Apart from the main investment, the projects also include a wide range of educational activities, promoting a circular economy and sustainable development among young and older inhabitants of Rzeszow. Project outcomes:

  • Increasing the capacity of the wash facility
  • Reducing water and energy consumption and wastewater emissions
  • Achieving a water recycling level of 85%
  • Social education on climate change and the circular economy

Educational Activities:
The project includes an educational campaign to raise awareness among the residents of Rzeszów. These efforts will promote resource conservation and waste reduction, contributing to the mitigation and prevention of climate change. We will work with youth and kids from primary schools to develop innovative solutions promoting the circular economy in small local communities.

Sustainable Investment:
The expansion of the wash facility is an investment in line with sustainable development principles, which, through the use of recycling technology and renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic panels, will significantly reduce the company’s ecological footprint.

Project Sustainability:
The infrastructure will become the property of MPK Rzeszów and will be maintained in proper technical condition throughout the project’s lifetime. The project’s educational materials will be available online and can serve as inspiration for future initiatives.
