Eco Spindles (Pvt.) Ltd, a fully-owned subsidiary of BPPL Holdings PLC, launched its highly anticipated ‘Waste 2 Value’ app at a special event.
The app launch coincided with ‘Global Recycling Day’ and is aimed at encouraging responsible plastic recycling among the general public and consolidate recyclable waste collection efforts within the country.
Importantly, the app was launched to help citizens locate bins more conveniently, enabling the disposal of their plastic waste properly. The app is capable of locating over 300 plastic waste bins around the island.
The app can be downloaded via Google Play Store for Android and App Store for iOS and easily locates the nearest plastic waste bin.
During 2019/20, Eco Spindles had recycled over 81 million PET bottles, amounting to around 2.3 million kilograms of PET sourced mainly through the company’s 400-strong network of registered recyclable waste collectors and 19 baling sites.
