More than 15 tons of plastic waste was recycled in three months through a joint project of the United Nations Development Program and the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection of Turkmenistan.
Individual enterprise "Begler Yoly" and entrepreneur Eldar Aliyev recycled plastic waste collected under this project. "Begler Yoly", in its factory in the industrial zone in Ak Bugday etrap of Akhal velayat, produces plastic pipes for drip irrigation by recycling plastic bottles, bags and plastic utensils. Entrepreneur Eldar Aliyev recycles plastic waste at a production facility in the village of Akdashayak, Ahal velayat.
This eco-project was funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF). As part of the project, 55 specialized containers for the collection of plastic waste in Ashgabat were purchased last October.
