It will contribute to creating awareness, raising awareness about zero waste, and raising awareness about contributing to recycling.”


With the ‘Zero Waste’ training given by Environmental Engineers, a total of 100 environmental inspectors selected from each neighborhood of Yıldırım were offered tablets, environmental inspector IDs, badges, vests and hats within the scope of the project. Leader Oktay Yılmaz said, “Our environmental volunteer children, within the scope of the mission, those who throw garbage around, those who damage trees and plants, those who do not throw recyclable items such as paper, tin, glass, plastic and batteries into the recycling bin, those who pollute water resources, those who pollute green areas. Those who do not protect, those who waste water and electricity, those who harm animals, will follow and photograph them with the tablets given to them by our municipality and share them with us through the software program to be installed.

Requests, complaints and offers received through this system will be checked daily by the team to be established in the Surroundings Protection and Inspection Directorate, necessary measures will be taken, requests will be made and warnings will be made in line with the complaints. With our project, it is also aimed to teach children not to throw garbage, not to collect garbage. The activities to be held throughout the year will also contribute to the formation of environmental awareness in our children. With the project we have done to raise environmentally sensitive and conscious generations for our future and our country, our children will also make their own decisions, and we, as the municipality, will implement the decisions taken with the environmentally friendly children’s council that we will hold in the council hall of our municipality every 3 months and ensure that the children participate in the administration.
