The “UOB Recycles” Project

"UOB Recycles" is a student based project at the University of Balamand aiming at spreading the 3R culture (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) among youth.
When it was first launched in April 2008, special containers were placed at different locations within the University to facilitate the collection of recyclable material (paper, plastic, cans, and glass).
The project then developed to integrate schools in the region and invite them become partners in spreading this culture in their communities. In an attempt to increase motivation among participating schools, a yearly thematic competition with attractive prizes is organized.
School students are mentored by UOB students in all aspects of the competition.
We now are partners with 60 schools located in Jbeil, Batroun Chikka, Koura ,Tripoli and Akkar.
Furthermore the project was very quick to gain the interest of the civil community and it overgrew to involve 400 partners from various sectors (municipalities, hospitals, restaurants, bookshops, supermarkets, households…)
It is hoped that this project will enhance the sense of citizenship and responsibility among youth and will help them to be more effective elements in their society.
