EGF has launched the TONS OF HELP social responsibility campaign, which is expanding throughout its territory and is directed at all IPSS located in its concessionaires' intervention areas.


The campaign consists of valuing all the recyclable waste that the registered institutions want to deliver, namely plastic, metal, paper, cardboard and glass packaging, in exchange for a financial contribution.






To participate you will need to register at the concessionaire in your area and, upon data's reception, a customer form will be opened, which will act as a checking account for each institution to quantify the weight of the material delivered, and then a weighing slip will be provided. 






Deliveries of materials must be made directly at the premises of your concessionaire.


Deliveries made by other entities will also be accepted if proven that they are made on behalf of an IPSS already registered in the campaign.
