Greater Male’ Plastics Collection Project


This ambitious project will likely be the most visible initiative of MOPA’s initial initiatives. Dustbins will be placed in identified locations in the capital, Male’, followed by a mass media campaign to educate and raise awareness on safe disposal of trash, especially plastic waste.

As part of this project, a daily collection service will be initiated to pick out PET bottles and other plastic waste from the designated bins, sorting and storage of the plastic, and ultimately moving to recycling facilities.

MOPA foresees that this project will involve strong stakeholder support and participation, including government and council assistance, haulers involvement and PET recycling specialists.
