Thursday, June 07, 2012
Members of the Bah’s Plastic Waste Recycling Youth Group on Tuesday presented flower vases made out of waste plastic bags to the KMC at a ceremony held at the council’s chambers. This youth group is a group comprisingyoung people from the West Coast Region engaged in recycling plastic wastes, thus, making the environment free of plastic.
the presentation ceremony, Mustapha Njai, CEO of KMC commended the youths for
the foresight, noting that it is a move in the right direction. He implored on
them to keep up the momentum, something he said if continued, can positively
impact on the environment.
He assured of the council’s partnership with them in the recycling of waste plastics. According to him, these youths have been doing a great work in the past particularly around the municipality complex by collecting plastic waste for recycling.
the flower vases, Amadou Bah, head of the group, said the initiative is part of
efforts to complement government’s efforts in protecting the environment.
According to him, they are not financially strong to carry on with the project and called for the general public to support them in realising their dream. He informed Mayor Colley that all the members of the group are school graduates who want to venture into something rather than just sitting down.
Receiving the flower vases, Mayor Colley commended the group for the great initiative, noting that young people have a great role to play in the development of the country, and that the present government is a youthful government. According to him, the president and government are ever committed to support any youth who wants to venture into something positive for the country.
He cited the bad effect of waste plastic on the environment, saying all hands must be on deck to minimise it. He finally assured the youths of his council’s support.
