Action plan

After more than 2 years of presence and specific actions in the valley, Mountain Propre is able today to set up an action plan concerning the collection, the sorting and the evacuation of the waste out of the valley. The action plan will first concentrate on the recyclable waste, because no sustainable solution concerning the non recyclable waste is at present planned by the local authorities.

plan action

This action plan articulates in 2 different phases and its implementation is distributed over the years 2013 and 2014:

Phase 1

- Provision of systems of internal collection for the barkeepers and hotels
- Establishment of tours of information / raising awareness for the inhabitants of Imlil and neighborhood
