The National Solid Waste Management Authority NSWMA is reporting that almost 100,000 pounds of plastic have been collected under its pilot plastic separation project implemented in several St. Andrew communities last year.

This was revealed by NSWMA Projects and Planning Manager, Edson Carr who was speaking during the NSWMA’s webinar on ‘Plastic Separation During a Pandemic’ held on June 2 as part of the activities for National Environmental Awareness Week 2021.

The pilot project engages households from Metropolitan Parks and Markets’ northern belt communities, including Hope Pastures, Barbican, Liguanea, Mona, Havendale, Jack’s Hill, Cherry Gardens, Long Mountain, Norbrook, Dillsbury, Millsborough, Lower Shortwood, Beverly Hills, Belgrade Heights, Smokey Vale and Meadowbrook.

The NSWMA will be expanding the number of communities as it moves into phase 2 of the project.
