Jamaica rolls out US$7.5 million recycling pilot project

CARIBBEAN

The Jamaican National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA) is undertaking a US$7.5 million recycling pilot project in three communities. The ‘Waste Reduction through Waste Separation, Waste Diversion and Recycling Project’ aims to reduce the high volume of plastic bottles at the Riverton disposal site. It will involve partnerships with various stakeholders in the recycling of plastic containers. Approximately 2,000 households, and around 10,000 people will participate in the six-month pilot. The Japanese Government, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency, is providing US$6.5 million for the undertaking, with the Government of Jamaica, through the authority, contributing the rest of the funds. It is estimated that the equivalent of 347 tonnes of solid waste or 3.8 million plastic bottles will be collected during the implementation.
