RECYCLING IN ANTIGUA
Wednesday 24th September 2014

Keep Antigua Clean and Green! On the heels of International Coastal Cleanup Day, where we saw groups coming out to clean beaches, we've put together a post on what we can do to reduce and recycle our waste here in Antigua. There are recycling stations around the island that take a variety of materials for recycling, from plastics and metals to computers and electric motors. See the options for recycling and how you can do your part below.

Will’s Recycling
Will’s Recycling is located in Hatton in the Cooks Dump area and recycles mostly metals, including aluminum drink cans ($0.50/lb), electric motors, batteries, circuit boards and more. They also provide free pick-up!

Do Your Part

You can do your part for the environment in so many little ways.

Spread the word and encourage others not to litter, and to recycle as much waste as they can.
