As part of its efforts to promote sustainable waste management, Kommunalservice Jena (KSJ) has handed over collected cork material to Naturschutzjugend (NAJU) Jena.

The cork material collection, which has been taking place at a collection point at the northern recycling center since July 2022, makes it possible to conserve resources.

The aim is to make the best possible use of cork material in line with a sustainable circular economy approach. Through the NAJU, the collected cork material is used in various environmental education projects and creative activities to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and resource conservation.

The handover of 12 removal boxes with a collection volume of 140 kg to the NAJU took place on December 13, 2023. In this context, we would like to thank the visitors of the Recycling Center North for collecting over 6,000 cork bottle caps.

Cork collection still possible

The collection campaign will continue in 2024. The corks can be handed in during the opening hours of the recycling center at Löbstedter Straße 56.
