Establishing a Recycling Centre in Mexico

by Global Vision International Charitable Trust
Dec 5, 2011

Recycling centre made from plastic bottles!

We are very excited to share that construction at the recycling centre has now started.

During the recent lobster festival celebration, we had a busy day in the recycling centre. After Tropical storm Rina, a lot of the plastic was blown away (as it does not have a proper storage place), so we joined forces to tidy up the plastic and things were shifted around as the construction will start soon and we need to make space for all the building materials.

Also, 10 new containers were built to place around town as more people wish to join the programme.

The construction is starting this weekend, after discussion with the community we have decided to build the centre with plastic bottles!! Yes, with all the plastic and glass bottles that have been collected in town! People in town will come in groups to help the centre, and hopefully in a few weeks it will be finished!

We are still focused on raising funds to finish building the recycling centre. Thank you to everyone who has supported this project so far or will moving forward.
