Aside from the “regular” waste management world, there is the work of silent, local, informal waste collectors in North Macedonia, whose contribution for a cleaner environment is growing. This presentation, which was held by REDI’s Asib Zekir (Director of Green Initiatives and REDI Recycling), focused on the work of these informal waste collectors, how they can be made formal, how it grew to this level – with the help of REDI, all the way to explaining the processes and phases they’ve ingrained in their work!

The session was held on 14.11.2022, at which Asib gave the whole background on the informal waste collectors in North Macedonia and their contribution to a cleaner environment.

Topics covered:

  • The issue of informal waste collectors
