EVRAZ Holds Eco Quest in Kachkanar

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 26, 2018. EVRAZ Holding coordinated an international environmental quest in teamwork plogging and recycling in Kachkanar for the first time this year. 1,500 kg of plastic, glass, metals, and paper stuffs got picked up on the shores of Kachkanar Pond as a result, the company press service reports.

Thirty-seven teams took part in the quest all in all, consisting of schoolchildren, teachers, and employees of EVRAZ Holding’s Kachkanar Ore Mining & Processing Enterprise and their families. The quest participants needed to collect and sort different categories of waste and score points for this. The score depended not only on the amount of picked-up waste (with batteries as a separate category) but also on the number of correct answers in an environmentally focused quiz, on the ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures of the area, and on contributing to specially designed challenges. Some of the finds proved quite curious: these were old kerosene lamps, felt boots, stuffed animals, phones, kitchen stools, armchairs, and New Year lights.

The locals collected around a hundred batteries, over twenty old car tires, and some fifty glass bottles and jars in under two hours. More than two hundred trash bags filled with the pickup got sent to the recycling facility.
