Title: Sustainable Design and Implementation of a Solid Waste Management System in Kratovo, Macedonia: A Learning Partnership between University of Florida and Macedonia through Engineers without Borders
University of Florida students will expand a project to design a long-term, sustainable solid waste management program in Kratovo, Macedonia, where solid waste is currently disposed of in the streets, the river, and an illegal landfill. Another aspect of the project is to inform the local community, government, and Peace Corps volunteers of the impacts of the current method of disposal on human and environmental health.
