The first modern landfill in Estonia was established 16 years ago in Väätsa.
Now it is a recycling waste station which collects and separates municipal wastes from local area. After separation the waste will be sent to companies which reuse it as a raw material for new products.
We have had few interesting places to visit. Yesterday Särevere students told us their experiences about agricultural training at Särevere campus of Järvamaa Kutsehariduskeskus. It came up that they would like to have even more education about sustainable development in their studies.

In the first year I was in a two different companies doing my work placement. The first one was in a local waste reception station Kymenlaakson Jäte. I was there from October to February three days a week. From March to May I was working for Metsähallitus, that provides natural resources sector services to a diverse customer base and it's operations are based on the knowledgeable and co-operative use of state land and water areas. In Metsähallitus we took care of the Gulf of Finland Natural Park, which is located in the islands in the Kotka archipelago. In the summer I was working for the city of Kouvola and now in the autumn semester I continue my working placement there. I've been using the brush cutter and chainsaw, planning bike trails around the city and fixing duckboards, for example.
These are pictures from the waste reception station:
These are from Metsähallitus:
I got to mark the nature reserve in the woods by painting the trees and placing this plate in it.
Going around the Gulf of Finland Nature Park was only possible by boat.
The scenery in the archipelago was more than awesome!
We had to leave the boat there because there was not enough water. We had those red dry suits on so we could just walk to the shore.
Here we are digging out the harmful beach rose (Rosa rugosa) that will spread very fast.
Net pictures are from the city of Kouvola:
The brush cutter I use quite much.
My first day task was to take that yellow plate over there!
