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.
