Association for Waste Recovery

Association for Waste Recovery (AVD) is a platform for consulting and training in waste management and environmental protection. The most important objective of AVD is to change the trajectory of the destructive path whereby everything that is consumed becomes waste, carelessly thrown away, to a circular path where every waste is actually a resource, and being managed correctly will only generate long-term benefits for the environment, economy and society. In 2020 AVD achieved accreditation by the National Agency for Quality Assurance in Education and Research of the first continuous training programme: “Waste Management Specialist”.
