Plastic Waste Collection Point Implementation
Plastic pollution is having a negative impact on our oceans and wildlife health. The most common plastic waste products are straws, yoghurt cups, mega bottles, lunch sheets, milk packets, meal boxes, polyethylene bags, sachet packets and wrappers.
However, the extend of management of plastic waste can determines the risk of plastic entering the ocean. Developed countries have very effective waste management systems. Poor waste management across many developing and under developed countries mismanage their plastic waste and become the main sources of global ocean plastic pollution.
However, as a responsible nation, Sri Lanka should adopt effective plastic waste management methodologies. This Project mainly aims to implement plastic collecting points for public access and private collection points in organizations where considerably large amount of plastic waste is generated. This project is funded by Parley for the Oceans Sri Lanka.
