The first Caritas Recycling Workshop was established in Svetl two decades ago. The idea of creating supervised workplaces for people with disabilities and at the same time making recyclable materials from materials that are no longer needed was well received. Since 2001, it has created 15 jobs and six jobs for 29 disabled employees. In addition to processing recyclable materials, Caritas recycling workshop employees also do contract and outsourcing work for regional companies.
The annual processing capacity is 356 tons
The work of the recycling workshop is organized into four departments. The threads here are separated from the cardboard bobbins and fastened to the bundles. Cardboard as well as single source yarn can be supplied to international industrial companies for targeted recycling. With airbag recycling, the air bag product separates from the tissue residual strips, compresses and returns the raw material to the cycle. For the 20th anniversary, Florian Bauer, Facility Manager, says: For all the employees who were with us from the beginning, we received certificates and small gifts at the celebration.
Suitable for job market
Caritas Director Hanas Siechelsberger stressed at the event: “It is important to make the transition between Caritas workshops and to create such job offers within companies’ structures for people with disabilities to work in companies. Therefore, it is also a goal to equip employees for the first job market according to their capabilities, which are always successful. One employee at Autenstein Golf Course has already been offered a permanent position.
ප VP Pradeshiya Sabha member Christian Tesk-Hoffmester congratulated the anniversary: “Sweatle’s recycling workshop is a particularly valuable project that incorporates the benefits of the environment into the working life of people with disabilities through recycling. The people who work here perform important and meaningful functions and also have many social connections. “
Ö VP MP Lucas Brandweiner, District Captain Matthias Krol and VVP Mayor Franz Mold during a visit appreciated the service of the staff at the Caritas Recycling Workshop. “You are making an important economic contribution. It is important that this facility exists,” Mold stressed, for example.
