As part of the U.S. Government’s efforts to combat ocean plastic pollution, the United States Agency for International Development through its Clean Cities, Blue Oceanprogram, awarded a grant to Waste Recyclers Fiji Ltd and Pacific Recycling Foundation to design and build I-Recycle Hub Bins that will promote recycling practices in Suva City.
With USAID’s support, five bins will be set up in well-known high-occupancy establishments around the city, particularly in office buildings, apartments, and small business shops.
The I-Recycle Hub Bins will have three to five compartments that are labeled and colour coordinated to specific recyclables to make them user-friendly.
USAID Pacific Islands Senior Development Advisor Michael Glees says they are very pleased to award this grant to WRFL and PRF and work with them in addressing ocean plastic pollution in the Pacific Islands.
The CEO of WRFL and Founder of PRF Amitesh Deo says they are very grateful to USAID’s support for their I-Recycle Hub Program as they bring to the forefront the concept and practice of recycling in Suva City.
