Reported on Collected Plastic Bottles from Kampung AB

On the 22nd of January 2010, we had placed all collection boxes on every floor in Kampung AB. After 16 days, which was the 8th of February 2010, we collected all the plastic bottles students had dropped into the collection boxes and below are the results in number of units.

B 245
C 199
D 219
E 211





H 123
Total 1601 879

The sum of collected plastic bottles = 1601+879=2480

In our 4 day survey of types of trash thrown out by students which was conducted last semester, the total number of plastic bottles that we had collected was 608 units. A 16 day estimation would be 2432 units of collected plastic bottles and we are glad to say we have collected 2480 units of all.

In others words the amount is higher than we had assumed. Keep it up (Editor: I think this is meant as an encouragement to the team for successfully collecting perhaps all recyclable plastic bottles, not for generating that much trash).

  1. Great job! I was a hostel resident a few years back and it pains me to see all the recyclebles going to waste. Thanks for all your efforts, it does make a difference!

  2. Thank you for the thank you. How did you find out about us, if you don’t mind sharing?
