Report on Collected Plastic Bottles from Kampung AB

     As a continuation to the recycling project from the last semester, this semester the Greenpulse committee had placed all collection boxes on every single floor in the AB Residential College on the 20th of September 2010.

     The project was a delayed due to the difficulties in accumulating the boxes necessary since much of the boxes from the previous semester were stolen although we stored all of them at the basement of a block as we are not allowed to keep them in the Jakmas office.

     The lower than expected number of boxes became a major problem at first. Secondly, there were no more free boxes from the previous supplier, Giant, for this semester.

     Due to the limitation of time, we decided to buy about half of the total boxes required from the supplier after discussion among the Greenpluse committee. The remaining boxes required were collected from the grocers from time to time.

    Until the time of writing, there are still four blocks which do not have any collection boxes for plastic bottles. Despite the snag in this recycling project, Greenpulse still continues with our efforts to find more boxes to complete the allocation of boxes to all blocks.

     On the 22nd of October 2010, we had our first collection of plastic bottles and it was a quite encouraging figure in  which the total was 2014.

     As with previous recycling efforts, one of the major problems remains the dropping-off of unwanted goods inside the boxes such as plastic bags, cans, leftover food and unrecyclable trash.

     Big thanks to all Greenpulse committee members who contributed a lot of effort into this project. Lastly, we hope by the beginning of the next semester, we will be able to collect more boxes which we need for the recycling activity, and hope residents will take more responsibility towards the environment.
