Voltic, Environment360 launch project to reduce plastic waste
Voltic Ghana Limited, one of the largest producers of bottled water in the country has launched a PET plastic recycling project to help reduce the amount of scattered plastic waste in the environment.
The project which is done in collaboration with an NGO, Environment 360, was piloted in James Town, one of Accra’s fishing communities, where the project collected plastic waste bottles, processed it and exported it to be recycled into other materials to be used for polyester among others.
The project was piloted to measure the feasibility of a community PET waste collection scheme as well as testing the viability of a larger scale project.
