BOTTLE RECYCLING PILOT PROGRAM ENDS
Friday 19th November 2021

The Ministry of Health, Wellness, and the Environment wishes to inform all participants of the Bottle Recycling Pilot Program that the initiative will be ending on November 20th, 2021.

All bottles deposited on that day will be accepted once they qualify for the 20 cents.

Additionally, once the pilot program for collection has closed participants will have up to Friday 17th December to cash out payments made in their voucher booklets.

In relation to the National Bottle-to Bottle Scheme this will be implemented in the following year, 2022. Therefore, an appeal is being made for individuals to keep storing plastics bottles as an opportunity for upscaling is possible next year. Don't forget to get the children involved, make recycling a family affair.

To this end, the Ministry is grateful for all who have participated in the program to make it a success and more importantly playing a role in environmental stewardship. Moreover, the data gathered will aid in the implementation of the national policy. Thank you for doing your part!!!
