Recycling: Pressing Machine for PET

Organized by: Roberto Ferrer

In my home town called Mercedes in the province of Buenos Aires, in Argentina, there is a small NGO called CAIDIM. This NGO was borne in 1969 and their main goal is to give a job to intellectual disability women and men from my home town. For many years they have been doing an amazing job by receiving paper, carton board and PET among other materials and they have been selling it in order to earn some money. They also do a lot of bunch of amazing things. They are doing pretty well but they cannot receive more recycling material as they don't have enough space in their deposit. Therefore, it would be amazing if we can help them buying a pressing machine so they can compress it and use much less storage place. As an important note, in my home town, unfortunately there is no other way for people to take their old paper or used bottles other than giving it to CAIDIM. In the past and until today itself, any local government never put in place any recycling system. All the garbage is dumped in open fields. Imagine how bad that is. I really hope you understand the reason for asking for some money. CAIDIM and the environment cannot thank you enough! You can check CAIDIM's facebook page on
