The reycling center will be made with plastic bottles!!

After receiving some funding from the government the recycling center has finally started the construction.

During the lobster festival celebration, we had a busy day in the recycling center. 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 want to join the program.

The construction is just starting this weekend, after a few talks the people decided to build the center 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 center, and hopefully in a few weeks it will be finished!

So, if you want to be part of this great project, give us a hand, we are still raising funds for completing the money we need to finish building the recycling center.
