Recycling Tips from Wisynco

Wisynco promoted their ongoing Recycling ‘Eco’ campaign at Expo Jamaica a few weeks ago.

Plastics are not biodegradable, so they do not disappear or break down naturally when they are thrown on our streets and wash down into our gullies, blocking drains. To help prevent flooding and keep Jamaica clean, we need to recycle.

You can start your own recycling journey by calling Wisynco today to get Recycle bags and bins for your home, office of curbside.

You can also drop off your collection of plastics to the following locations:

Ten Easy Ways to Use Less Plastic

With all the rain Jamaica is experiencing, let us be more conscious of how we dispose our waste so our drainage system doesn’t become blocked up with debris, especially debris that is not biodegradable.

For instance, Plastic is not biodegradable and one of the easier ways to ensure that there is no blockage of our drains is to use less plastic.

Gullies are the next focus for Ja after Beach Cleanup Success

The International Coastal Cleanup Day seemed to be a success islandwide last Saturday with over 100 sites.

Suga helped the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) behind the scenes at the popular, Fort Rocky site that had thousands of Cleanup volunteers. After observing the results each year, I was happy to see that the garbage, especially plastics collected was significantly less than previous years.

Fort Rocky site, Kingston. Jamaica

JET’s ‘Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica’ campaign including its catchy jingle has been huge this year and it looks like it is slowly but surely having positive effects on our country and creating more awareness amongst our people.

After our Island’s Coastline was a huge focus, the Government looks like it will help to focus on the cleaning up of our Streets and Gullies moving forward.

The Government is considering putting low risk convicts to work to clean up our streets and gullies that have been filled with debris and of course special clothing should be bought for them.

Sadly, this motion may be in effect mainly as a result of a video that went viral on social media when we experienced the downpour the other day. Our streets and gullies have been screaming for attention for some time now. The video showed the flooding of the grounds of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Fisheries Division on Marcus Garvey Drive in Kingston during the downpour as a result of the blocked drains in the area by garbage.

Fines may also be increased for littering in Public places under the law. Fines are currently set at $2000JMD for a littering offence. 

Let us continue to help keep our Island clean. Do not Litter. Recycle or dispose of plastics in recycle bins. The list goes on. 

If you would like more information on various efforts being made to clean up our environment or would like to be a JET volunteer and/or Donate and more, it is easy.
