Mountaineers, athletes, women's organizations, as well as citizens and schoolchildren, have joined the action of separate collection of packaging waste in Rudo. The municipality of Rudo and local organizations responded to the call for partnership and participation in the project From Source to the Sea, which Coca-Cola in Bosnia and Herzegovina sent to seven cities and municipalities involved in this year's project.

The action of cleaning and collecting waste in Rudom, with the support of numerous partner institutions and organizations, and with the coordination of the NGO Eko Centar, included separate collection of waste through parks and streets, and along the banks of the Lim River. Participants in the action separated recyclable waste from mixed waste, and collected plastic packaging, paper and cans separately from other non-reusable waste.

This was the third action within the project that began on 7 September with the campaign of collecting packaging waste along the banks of the Drina River and through Višegrad, and continued in Foca. After today's action in Rudo, actions are planned in Bihać, 1 Oct, Tuzla 8 Oct, Tomislavgrad 15 Oct, and the final action for this year in Sarajevo 29 Oct.
