Let’s make it beautiful!! Don’t throw it away

 

Sustainable overseas territories 2018 contest

Joint 3rd Prize: The Carbet, Martinique

Despite the waste collection arrangements set up on the territory, some places in the town of Carbet have turned into rubbish dumping sites. In order to improve this territory, the town launched the project “Let’s make it beautiful!! Don’t throw it away “, which consists in having both the town’s environmental and technical departments green and tidy up these dumping areas twice a month. With this initiative, the municipality wishes to foster social links through encouraging residents to become stakeholders in improving their quality of life and raising awareness on waste collection. These green areas will also enable the gradual creation of ecological areas protecting local biodiversity.
