ASEKOL SK launched the "Recyklohry" (Recycling Games) scheme in Slovakia in 2011. The aim of this project is to increase awareness among pupils regarding waste collection and recycling and give them first-hand experience with the collection of small items of electric waste and batteries. The scheme has gained great popularity. Over 1200 schools have joint the scheme since 2011.
The "Recyklohry" scheme is a long-term educational programme aimed at developing the right attitude to the environment among children through theme tasks, games and quizzes. It involves direct participation of pupils in the collection of small items of electric waste and batteries. The schools are collecting points for fulfilling the tasks and collecting waste. Then they are rewarded for the points collected with arts and sports tools, games and/or theatre, cinema and zoo tickets.
