The Ministry of Health, Wellness, and the Environment would like to thank the public for the support in curbing plastic leakage of bottles across the island.
That would have littered our coastlines, beaches, and waterways. In addition, to taking up space at the Cook’s sanitary landfill. This project will instead divert our used bottles back into recycled bottles closing the loop.
Week one of the project saw a total of 12,291 bottles collected.
A total of 41 persons participated in collecting and returning bottles ranging from youngsters to seniors.
The cash out total is $1085.28
The epicurean drive has been the busiest location with a minimum of 2000 bottles collected daily.
Collection points between 7-10 July week 1:
Ebenezer South Mall- 1,732
Crab hole Liquor Cobbs Cross- 999
