The used plastic bottle take back scheme presentation at the Ministry’s boardroom

Kenyans will soon experience a cleaner environment when collection and recycling of used plastic bottles kicks off.

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry recently signed a framework of cooperation with the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) under which production companies are affiliated, to kick start a take back scheme of used plastic bottles.

The coca cola bottling company one of the major producers of Polyethylene Terephthalate bottles commonly known as PET, today presented a public education and sensitization programme to the Environment Chief Administrative Secretary Mr. Mohammed Elmi.

Env. CAS Mohammed Elmi when he chaired a presentation meeting on public education and awareness regarding the used plastic bottles take-back scheme.

Mr. Elmi said that for success of the public awareness on the plastic bottles take back kicks, it was critical to involve county governments under which the waste management docket falls.

This he noted would ensure as many Kenyans as possible are educated on the need to recycle the plastic bottles after use.

The take back scheme will involve collecting used plastic bottles at a fee which will later be recycled at designated plants.

The presentation was attended by Dr. Ayub Macharia, the Ministry’s director of environment education and awareness, officials from National Environment and Management Authority (NEMA), KAM and Coca cola company representatives.
