By tradition, in BalBok we celebrate Earth Day - April 22 - with a special event. For 2024, this is the first day of the campaign in Blagoevgrad municipality (April 22-23). The mobile point is now located on "St. Ivan Rilski" Street and "Macedonia" Square, next to the Blagoevgrad Chamber Opera building and will remain there from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. From 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., it will move to the residential area "Elenovo", Georgi Andreychin St., in the area of the parking lot in front of the supermarket.

The Municipality of Blagoevgrad and BalBok Engineering started the System for the collection of household hazardous waste on the territory of the Municipality back in 2018 and are making joint efforts for its development with their successful cooperation.

Earth Day

For the first time, Earth Day is officially celebrated on April 22, 1970 in the United States and Canada. Bulgaria is one of the first countries to join Earth's international Earth Day commencement since 1990. On April 22, 1992, Bulgaria signed the oath in the name of the Earth.

 

Each year, the International Earth Day Network coordinates the actions of more than 12,000 partners in 174 countries to protect the planet Earth and preserve life on it. The network seeks to create broad civil support for sustainable and effective environmental development policies around the world.
