During the event, products of the member companies of the MNRA were also showcased with samples and fliers. This helped the public to know about the possibilities of recycling different types of materials. Most of the visitors stated that they have realized the importance of waste separation at the household level so that private companies have more opportunities to produce different types of waste-based products. The feedback from the public and the state organizations’ representatives were very positive. There were some questions regarding the sustainability of the action after the project completion and the project team members took time to discuss and exchanged views on the ways to support it.
