Great friend and agitator of plastic recycling pays visit to one of UPMRA plants you assimilate herself with Plastic recycling science knowledge. Remember no one has ever visited plastic/buveera recycling industries and went back the same.
Recognition sparks more efforts,most appreciative to KCCA, UMA and government stake holders’ professionalism exhibited during plastic/kaveera public awareness drives we have so far conducted. Expect more from us 2017. Steady Progress
2017 Rolling on, we are devoted to continue the struggle on recycling buveera do not litter plastics irresponsibly, drop kaveera in designated dump areas or waste bins for easy delivery to recycling industries.
Watch below: Today trucks carrying buveera waste arrive to a recycling plant in kampala from Kamuli, Mbarara, Mbale among others.
Due to it’s good practices generally, Europe remains a one stop center for jobs worldwide. Locals there don’t lack jobs like us in Uganda and Africa at large but rather it’s all other backward directed countries that seek jobs including worst jobs indescribable.
The act of enhancing recycling industries to rid off Plastic dangers in the environment has floated jobs for natives and those who lack them from Africa.
WARNING: I READ EAST AFRICA NEWSPAPER PAGE 5 DATE 14-20 JAN 2017.
EALA Parliament must first consult the line stake holders in the plastic industries before they draw deductions. Since 2007, consultative meetings put resolutions and solutions that industries are practicing/implementing. Since it’s a regional issue advise any leader in EALA, consultation of the string of right people and institutions before they resolve misfiringly will aid smart decisions. Tanzania has no total ban but a 50 micronage recommendation.
Rwandan EALA MP,Hon Patricia Hajabakiga introduced this on floor of the regional parliament, but she is definately misleading the countries which already have enormous industrial establishment. RWANDA banned plastics at the time they never had serious industries but just juakali ones.
UGANDA has a good Case over many African countries as it’s the only country recycling these Plastic bags enormously. Aligning it to Kenya and Tanzania where souls of investors only produce sale and no recycle, will be a lamentable step. But in both countries, investors can be encouraged to develop Plastic recycling lines along their wide industrial establishments.
EALA, consult consult consult to draw better/practical solutions. By Moses Brown Ategeka (Madiba) Communications Uganda Plastics Manufacturers And Recycling Industries(UPMRA).
Watch a Europe documentary on Plastic use and solutions.
Ugandans can learn to manage plastics and avoid the evil of reckless litter of all plastics. My Son shocked me this morning after I found out he had created two garbage bags at home, one for general waste and another one for all recyclable buveera. Well waste collectors have been collecting them several times and selling kaveera to the common collectors around kireka and Namugongo. This is excellent of my boy. He says he has heard me promote the system on local TV stations. I have encouraged him to continue the practice as it shapes him into a responsible citizen and even teach it to his mates at school.
Collection and recycling is the way forward let us not dupe the public with dubious, reckless mechanisms inappropriate to established world system the 3Rs.
UPMRA officials were shocked by a misrepresentation of facts, underestimation and wrong figure projection about the enormous chores of Recycling industries in Uganda a week ago.
NOTE: After South Africa, Uganda is one of top most countries fantastically executing Plastic Recycling in Africa through the global provision of 3Rs (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle)
GOOD ENOUGH, The E.A Newspaper’ team took some hours off their busy schedule to visit one of the lead Recycling industries in Uganda. The team nodded in awe of what Uganda is already doing by collecting buveera through a large number of poor jobless Ugandans, statistics on economic empowerment through taxes and how pretty the environment was being rid of the plastic menace. Looking at bi-products
Out of kaveera recycling, reporters could not conceal a disappointment over leaders who want craft laws without making necessary consultations.
Like the whole world, science is the Rule, Europe, Canada and others have of late quadrupled the job scale for citizens and immigrants through a largely advocated 3Rs system. Uganda beats many countries in Africa including those in East Africa since half of industrial set up is enormously recycling Buveera and other plastics ie 20 plants out of total 40.
NB. Plastic is beyond buveera. All plastics are a menace starting from non Wooven Bags (colored supermarket bags) to Jericans and bottle packages. We must recycle all plastics without fail. Selfish seekers only look at buveera and forget other dangerous plastics. Lets think smart with Recycling.
Pictures: UPMRA PRO Moses Brown leads team through the recycling system and policy matters on 30 microns above. How and why the industries must thrive over the frail laws that are innacurate. How 3Rs science takes lead on global Plastic management.
The main visit and submission to EALA MPs in Kigali was to help backtrack the one sided polythene Control Bill,an act that destroys industrial status in the region.The Bill has been highly criticized by not only industrial scholars but also the environmental activists who have respect for initiation of vastly growing 3Rs around the world.
OUR EFFORTS (UMA with Sali Goddie, UPMRA ATM Brown,KACITA With Issa Kizito, Plasto/Pipeline chief, Naim Sabra) were paid off. Our aim was to seek further consultations with most affected people. It worked well, right now the Bill has been pushed on to seek more consultation
EABC ED LILIAN AWINJA led the team from Arusha Sacretariat to the country’s leading plastic Recycling facility the Pipeline Industries in Luzira Kampala. The team was physically overwhelmed by the progress of Kaveera Recycling stressing that, It’s enough to say ‘ALL INDUSTRIES MUST RECYCLE!
In this it implies, all Industries that don’t recycle will be headed for exit for polluting the environment without an effort to control the damage.
EABC is in support of the polutter Taxation also known as green levy for all kaveera/plastic Industries.
Uganda is second to South Africa on the level of Recycling status in Africa. Chief founder Uganda Plastic Manufacturers and Recyclers Association (UPMRA) Sabra moderated the EABC Team.
EABC team has recently rejected the polythene Bill drafting sighting irregularities and inapplicable sections and thereby requesting EALA to give more time to the Bill and highly involve the private sector for better amendments.
All roads led to Makerere University today for an Agricultural trade fair themed Agribusiness for youth employment amidst Climate Change, UPMRA colors, mission and recycling also wad clearly visible for all at this 6th expo.
Our environment officer Nicholas Kiiza and other UPMRA staff are there to demonstrate to you about the amazing scientific 3Rs that are used worldwide to control plastic menaces in the environment.
School students, campusers, environment, leaders and agricultural experts took enough time at the Upmra stall as they learnt the deeper science and mechanism about plastic recycling.
Recycling is an organised system that helps to retrieve all sorts of plastic from the environment for recycling into other useful products by local industries.
Today there are over 600000 Ugandans directly involved in plastic manufacture and Recycling chain.
Public awareness is being spearheaded by UPMRA members as a cooperate social responsibility mandate, this will help masses to realize the need to tap into plastic benefits other than dwelling on dangers yet with established scientific solutions in place.
Applause goes to everyone that took time to learn about this science of plastic recycling and having acknowledged as away forward.
Hon Joy Kabatsi represented minister for Agriculture at this most graced conference themed, Agribusiness for youth employment amidst Climate Change.
The trade fare at Makerere campus finally drew to an end with students and learners from various institutions take a keen interest in mastering the recycling technology science for all plastics especially kaveera.
The amazing art and crafted products as seen in pics below out of kaveera was spot by students as a most interesting as other testified to having not known recycling methodology in controlling against kaveera and plastic in the environment.
FACT: UG has over 45 plastic industries out of which 25 are engaged in mass plastic recycling.These industries have partly contributed to national economy,job production and supportive to the largely needed value addition chain.
We Walked in and out of the region, all corners that had been infiltrated by the high degree falsehood about our recycling facilities by a section of people purportedly the enemies of development, more so failures of good environmental strategies.
We did our part to disclose the rightful facts and preached the recommended global initiatives that non of us can down play.
Gallery as it happened .
Uganda Plastic subsector , UPMRA members deliberating on how to better the industry this afternoon in UMA Boardroom 8n Kampala. Kaveera and other plastics don’t litter,people do.
Let’s work about behavioral change and manage plastics.
Nakawa Mayor Barimwezi,RCC Kemigisha hail Pipeline line Industries for exemplary mission on plastic/kaveera recycling. The team was expressly glad about the huge green job employment, 3Rs strategy and the immense tax, utility bills contributions. Mayor Barimwezi pledged to work with these industries to further development.
UPMRA team,Pipeline staff and Miss earth,the main UPMRA partners in public awareness Creation had a great start to the Agricultural Expo currently underway at the parliament building in Kampala.
The joint operators in effecting proper usage/disposal of plastics including kaveera displayed yet another important expo at parliament today.
As the Women in Agricultural Expo draws to an end, UPMRA appreciates the Hon Minister of State for Agriculture,Christopher Kibanzanga for nodding the recycling technology being practiced by Kaveera and plastic manufacturers. The honourable minister was deeply amazed by the products after Kaveera Recycling.
Oyo Nyimba kabamba Iguru, the king of Tooro is expected to preside over the earth day celebrations later this noon at the peripheral of kibale national park in bigodi kamwenge district.
Impressingly so far, schools are doing well in trying to retrieve buveera out of environment for art and craft work.
The local population was this morning involved in picking kaveera and other plastics from the park peripherals and nearby townships.
Gallery below, children display art pieces made out of kaveera. This directly supplements UPMRA mass efforts in recycling buveera.
Viva Recycling! By ATM.
Public Awareness Campaign Well Executed thanks team Miss Earth “Beauty for a cause” People of Tooro
It was excellent with the King’s suggestion in his statement to the mammoth gathering in Bigodi subcounty Kamwenge district as Uganda took to the scene to celebrate Earth day.
More Celebrations are to be conducted but I must say King Oyo’s latest aim at waste management measures to contain any waste drop danger on Mother Earth,is such a hilarious achievement and critical.
UPMRA PUBLICIST, Moses Brown Ategeka took the King and his entourage through a well articulated plastic/kaveera control message which the king and his team,political agitators, religious and local populace nodded zealously.
Hon Ategeka the EX-EALA aspirant with his aspiration to excel plastic Recycling Technologies in the EA region reiterated that Upmra is already fetching buveera from upcountry but will also lift efforts in allocating country side plastic/Kaveera recycling units to ease on transportation setback.
School going children displayed their skills and knowledge on how to conserve the environment through art and craft.Children pick buveera from Environment and make artistic products such as Football,ropes,toys among others.
Story by ATM
“We pick buveera and other plastic from Environment,weave and thread them into various valuable products as you can see.” Mothers under Butabika Agro Development Organisation testified the innovation that makes them zero dependents to their husbands before Our Public Relations director in Kampala.
Ofcourse not since the dangers in the environment are more pronounced Globally.They are non recyclable compared to kaveera which is 100% recyclable.On one hand Non wooven bags(colored bags in supermarkets today) use bio oil or plastic raw material just as Kaveera. They take over 100 years to degrade in soil according to American Research Chemistry.
On another hand paper bags use trees/forests as raw materials,promoting them in a country is a direct deforestation.Paper bags use excessive energy consumption during production.
Hon.ATM/Public Relations UPMRA/PDF analyse incidents along with Plastic activistst of EALA MEMBERS IN RWANDA’S CAPITAL KIGALI.
He was this afternoon 6th June 2017 delivering the State of Nation Address at Serena Hotel in Kampala.
He cautioned NEMA to immediately stop blutarising and failing investments stressing it undermines development.
He was emphasizing on how he has boasted small scale business units for the youth across Kampala district where billions of shillings are already injected under the presidential initiatives programme.
“If you are a good manager like me,you don’t mix politics and economics.” The President cautioned.
“Like Cecilia Ogwal was my great enemy in the past yet I knew about all her businesses and the factory. I could have deliberately brought them down politically but since they belong to the people, I did not look at our differences.” The president expounded.
He reminded NEMA that these investments belong to the people but not investors.”Investors and Cecilia Ogwal are simply agents of Wealth Creation much as they benefit from these investments.
H.E Museveni pledged to work closely with the so far 700 members at Uganda Manufacturers Association(UMA) for more job opportunities in the country.
He says government has ears flapped up to note whoever is crippling investments and whether in Ministry of Finance, Uganda Investment Authority will be dealt with accordingly.

EXCLUSIVE!: Hon MPs Kabale and Soroti Municipalities resolve to take highly beaming plastic recycling technology to solve solid waste challenges in their municipalities in Western and Eastern Uganda.
The move is dubbed ” Let’s clean our Cities,Let’s harvest jobs out of kaveera/plastic Recycling to our people.”
The duo MPs,Hon.Aja Baryayanga Andrew (Kabale Municipality) also Dean of Independents in Parliament and Hon Ariko Herbert Okworo (Soroti Municipality), S.G Teso Parliamentalian’s Association were left startled with facts surrounding Recycling industries, jobs crated,the collection of buveera from Environment in huge tonnage was something they referred to as dispeakable. In pictures below MPs fancy products out of kaveera recycling in Uganda.
The duo were hosted by newly mult plastic Recyclers Industry in Kabanyoro Wakiso district led by Recyclers Pioneer Naim Sabra and Moses Brown Ategeka the publicist Plastics in Uganda.
Kabale Municipality receives it’s high tech Kaveera recycling Machine later next Week.
Hon Ajja Baryayanga Andrew the MP Kabale Municipality says his effort of establishing the the mult Million kaveera recycling Industrial Machinery there, is to ensure “A CLEANER KABALE MUNICIPALITY and JOBS FOR LOCALS”.
The Mp accompanied by Municipal Mayor Sentaro Byamugisha,councilors secured Kilengere on Kabalaga hill in the municipality as site for installation of the plant
Chief plastic Recycler/Consultant and Investor,mNaim Sabra was among the team to witness the ground levelling.
The Plant is set for operation later this month.
More than 2 tonns of Kaveera will be picked out of municipality on daily basis for recycling.
Over 40 to 60 people can be employed along the plant’ operations. Neigbouring districts such as Ntungamo, Kisoro, Rubanda, Kanungu among others can benefit from a cleaner campaingn and kaveera collection.
Mbarara has an MOU with Upmra Plastics to start a recycling plant that will ensure all buveera, other plastics retrieved from environment for recycling into useful products.
This is just after Kabale municipality started the mult million plant with a view of Keeping Kabale clean.Applause to Kabale Mp, Aja Baryayanga for setting up the multmilion plant in collaboration with Chief Recycling Consultant , Naim Sabra. A range of products can be manufactured out of buveera recycling. They include garbage bags, tree nursery tubes, construction Sheets , water pipes, trench pipes, electric conduit pipes,egg trays, home plastic utensils etc.
PICTURES: Robert Kachebezi the mayor Mbarara, Edward Lwanga the town clerk and his technocrats guided by chief Recycling Consultant/Plastic Investor Naim Sabra inspected Kenkombe dumping site where the plant is to be erected.
Over 20 industries out of 45 are majory recycling KAVEERA into a raw material for manufacture of a range of products. The multi billion complex industries in Uganda have done a great job in cleaning the environment. What is needed today is mass public awareness on responsible littering. Vast green jobs to both educated and uneducated Ugandans. Taxes and Utility billings are a great contribution to the economy.
Gallery: Women no longer depend on men handouts, they make the money and feed the families.
Kaveera Recycling has helped in maintaining some Cities Clean. Watch factual visuals below.
Kamwenge women and men living around Kibale National Park in Bigodi learn how to make better use of buveera and other plastics fetched from environment. It’s now a source of livelihood, a handmade product can cost shs 80,000. Minimum at shs 25, 000. Men were also advised to start mass Kaveera collection for industrial Use.
Applause to Unite for Environment for mobilising women ahead of this nature conservation measures. All environmentalists need to emulate yr approach.special applause to North Carolina Zoo for funding you ably.
Kampala based women group members already massively benefiting from Kaveera handcrafts, were on ground to teach these women. HAPPY EID!
It’s on come witness the source of jobs and revenues. With consideration of lead KAVEERA/plastic Recyclers that voluntarily clean the environment getting it rid of plastics.
She hinted while@breakfast Meeting for Nakawa business community at UMA multipurpose hall today 28th june 2017. Honourable Rebecca Kadaga was also shown this afternoon a new strategy to recycle plastics/food waste for plastic roads construction and compost manure generation.
The new system will be supplimeting the already established system of kaveera and hype recycling technologies which have led to various products manufacturing in Uganda as seen in pics below.
The Speaker was Massively impressed
Pics:Hons. Ategeka B Moses and Nicholas Kiiza enlighten during the breakfast meeting.
A fleet of pickups, large trucks among others parade at one of a recycling factory to deliver these buveeras as viewed in the pictures below.
The payment is instant not monthly based.
This is why littering buveera and other plastics is an offence. One can be arrested up to 6 months in jail plus a fine if found out recklessly littering.
Effecting positively on the psychological interpretation of ‘Littering’
Its Ugandans who litter kaveera, kaveera cannot litter itself. Knowing that everytime you throw kaveera on streets or undesignated points, you are throwing dollars/shillings

Our plastic recycling initiatives,are by far not private,we welcome everyone willing to learn,assimilating with clear global facts on 3Rs (Reduce Reuse Recycle) to come.
Recycling is not a Uganda trend but a real Global initiative as old as the American and British system. We must embrace it and forget the so called learned elites/scientists ,who even cannot describe the current situation.
Its scientific,we cannot dwell with propaganda which is mostly peddled by our competitors . They only know how to play dirty with such an amazing employment ,environmental sustain and noble beneficial add ons.
It’s about us (Ategeka, Naim 2017) exploring the success of Plastic/kaveera recycling Globally.
How Uganda is 2nd best in Africa in the use of this solution laying on table of Environment. It’s Coming Soon. Kaveera Hakuna Muchezo
She is currently the ambassador Private public Partnership under Operation Wealth Creation under the President Office Uganda. She is more determined to create sanity in what is seen as long standing controversy in plastic industries en other investments where PPP has not worked. She was visiting UPMRA plastic factories to ascertain challenges and investment level. She hailed Chief Naim Sabra for lifting women under the multi million dollar investment.
UPMRA effects Cooperate Social Responsibility(CSR) strategy thru Public awareness campaign and donations.
Bisecting point after point on Urban TV live I 1 hr from now,hosted to discuss how great the City Tyre Abudhabi Grand prix sponsorship is purely a classy strategy.
This offer gives UPMRA another fundamental step in its Recycling abilities and creating awareness on proper use of plastics.
Out Communications Director,AtM (Ategeka Moses )will be live by 11 am this morning.
PRIVATE SECTOR GROWTH THRIVES MORE ON CSR.
This was during a live interview inside Urban TV studios. AtM Upmra Plastics Responds the recycling way, “Sure our tasks in kaveera recycling are extended to a large part of Uganda.We do public awareness over responsible plastic littering, we mobilise masses and those willing to earn from kaveera/POLYTHENE collection for recycling.
Such long distance drives up country require strong quality tyres that would not easily erode us off the road.Our Senior, Naim Sabra loves quality too.
Only Pirelli tyre can move over a sharp nail with piercing through the tyre, so we got some trust over there.” AtM responded.
It’s simply an exemplary school in Kamwokya a Kampala suburb.The school is neighbours to Diplomatic missions such as Rwanda Embassy and British High Commission.
The impeccables around this school would let you into believing it’s the St Mary’s kisuubi, Namilyango, Kings College Buddo arena alas it’s the famous Kitante under KCCA management.
Overall view is they practice the core principals of solid Waste management something Plastic /polythene recycling industries in Uganda has always advocated for.
Sorting at source is more important in managing General solid waste.
In Europe and elsewhere, glass, papers, plastic pet bottles, food stuff and polythenes are separated in respective litter bins for easy access by recyclers. Uganda needs a sorting at source system which will lead to more desired green jobs and other benefits.
Revealing facts promoting Global recommended Science, disputing lies and fabricated research by environmental mafias along Jinja road. Focusing environmental management alongside Industrialization. Non works independent of the other. A SINGLE ENGINE DEVELOPMENT.
Kuddos to residents of NH Estates Nalya,Kiira Municipality,for showcasing what a smart-link system, 3Rs supplement that misses in most homes.
Sorting waste,binning it in separate waste containers is what should be implemented to complete Polythenes/plastic waste recycling chain.
UPMRA had to donate some of these waste bins because you already exhibited greater character in waste management in different designated points in Uganda.
Don’t litter,bin it in that container or garbage bag along streets. Saving The environment through Science and technology.
Note: This cloth as I hold it on Rwanda air, is not the only form of plastic career bag (kaveera) inside Rwanda. It’s a non wooven bag which also exhibits dangerous threats to environment.These non wooven plastic bags are different coloured in many supermarkets in Uganda. One fact is environmentalists who rival kaveera industries after being compromised by Competitors, their hands oiled by bribes or because they are poor researchers, have promoted non wooven bags as cotton bags yet they are a bio oil product, Same raw material that produces Kaveera/polythenes, produces Non wooven bags in this plane. On my flight, I have been wondering whether Rwandas concocted ban thrives on research or propaganda.I have top scholars /scientist who say Rwanda will one day choke from these kind of plastics because all Recyclering investors don’t want to go there.
Rwanda has all forms plastic kaveera evidenced at their country’s dumping site on Nduba plateau. So its plastic recycling investors and environment cleaner policies.These stories must end because it misleads the public. That plastic bag cannot degrade in soil for over 150 years.
“Environmentalists have tried several times to ban it but failed.Cant you see it all over the street?? ” A man along Mnanzi Mooja road told UPMRA official in Dar es Salaam.
They say kaveera benefits through jobs,taxes and value addition chain are enormous ,the country cannot manage to stop it.
Save Your Kidney! Being on a study tour of plastics In East Africa Region brings me another great notion of life.
Sharing Ideas beyond our fields is a greatly deserved attitude In society.
On several occasions I noticed coconuts beans extracted from Zanzibar Palm trees on streets beyond Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam Borders en streets.
On 3rd night after my dinner, I saw Indians lining up for the beans,A poor old man would peel them give an Indian at a time to drink from the large bean.I wondered what a hell it was meant for these Indians lining up before a poorly dressed up Mzee before a dirty bike.
I took an effort to ask,”What are these guys drinking from the crazy beans?” Majii! another ice cream vendor explains along the street.
One day in Kampala I tried a very dry coconut bean in Kampala from Garden City, the content in there was milky ,with an unappealing taste.
Alas,this bean on Streets of Zanzibar and beyond in Dar es Salaam, is typically fresh, chilly, with light non milky water substance, it really heals your soul on galloping it.
“Are you Ugandan?” An inquisitive Muyindi asked me. “No am East African residing in Uganda. I answered to his excitement.
“Why do you guys line up before this coconut vendor?” I asked Muyindi Man.
“He smiled before telling me,’its good for the Fiigo(swahili) to mean Kidney. In a video interview, old man says the water cleans the kidney deeply well.
Industrial war being fronted by Nema to mushroom one industry over another won’t help! Science and recycling is the only solution here!
UPMRA has today made it clear to National Environment Management Authority to stop going to public and unleash poisonous falsy allegations over UPMRA establishments should just pick 450 Billion and compensate the industries,then think of closing them down. UPMRA’s Communication director, AtM Brown made it clear in today’s press briefing held at operational chambers in Kololo, Kampala.
Ridiculously, NEMA is banning 45 industries and paving way for 2 plants as kaveera non wooven bags which are plastic in nature and non recyclable at all.Government will loose 45 plants 65,000 jobs, billions of taxes and the fastest growing plastic recycling technologies here on the soil.Above all this economical hurting move, NEMA must prepare shs 450 Billion shillings to pay to investors as compensation.
