Initiated by Altstoff Recycling Austria AG (ARA), the ARA4kids Recycling Days were held in cooperation with the waste management company Brantner from 12 to 14 April in Lower Austria. Some 650 children attended on three days in Krems, Kleinschönau and Hohenruppersdorf and experienced five play and activity stations to gain an insight into waste prevention, the separate collection and recycling of packaging and litter prevention.
This was the second time that ARA had realised the ARA4kids Recycling Days in Lower Austria together with Brantner, its long-standing waste management partner. Kindergarten and primary school children from the Krems region gathered on 12 April at the location of the waste management company Brantner Walter GmbH in Krems and on 13 April the ARA4kids crew made their way to Kleinschönau and the waste management partner Brantner Dürr GmbH & Co. KG. The third and final day on 14 April was held at the sorting facility of NUA Abfallwirtschaft GmbH, a Brantner Group company, in Hohenruppersdorf. The ARA4kidsteam and employees of the Brantner Group were present at the respective locations to support the highly motivated young environmentalists.
