The Municipality of Funchal today donated a total of 13,800 euros to two social institutions of the county, a figure which referred to packaging waste sent for recycling in the year 2017.
The Center of the Mother (represented by the responsible Mafalda Costa) and the Regional Nucleus of the Portuguese League Against Cancer (represented by President Ricardo Sousa) were, in this case, the two contemplated institutions this time. By means of a protocol established with the Municipality, they received 1 euro for each ton of recycled packaging waste last year.
In 2017, the Municipality of Funchal sent 6,900 tons of this type of waste for recycling, and each institution received a solidarity check today worth 6,900 euros. This was another initiative of the Municipality included in the Environment Week of Funchal 2018, which runs until next Friday.
