Promoting Recycling and Waste Management

Summary

Tradition has not caught up with global issues in Fiji and many community members continue to burn or bury their trash and this is having a hugely negative impact on our planet. This is down to a lack of support or options for waste management to education and awareness of the global issues. Taking Action to Change the community ways is the only option and this is why this project is so important.

Challenge

Fiji is made up of around 300 Islands and while around only half of these people live on it means that transportation systems are limited to air and sea. Traditionally all Islands would burn or bury their trash and these methods are still present on many islands today. Many smaller Islands do not have the infrastructure to move waste to the main island for recycling or do they have the training and education on how and what to recycle.

Solution

This project aims to launch a number of initiatives that work for each island, we have already funded boat transportation of waste management from a small island to the main Island and installed recycling bin centres in the heart of many communities along with training and workshops on recycling and the importance.

Long-Term Impact

Providing the infrastructure to start educating and managing the waste management island by island we will build ambassadors for change to help install projects across all the islands. People in Fiji don't recycle because they are unaware of the issues and this project aims to tackle this and get all communities recycling together as part of the United Nations SDGs.
