Project Description

Kwale Plastics Plus Collectors was established in 2017 with the aim to clean up the land, rivers, beaches and ocean. This is to be achieved via upgrading waste management, and in the future the project intends to recycle plastics into durable building materials. To date, they have installed 44 green stations for the public to freely dispose of recyclable trash. KPPC partnered with CES & MEC in June of 2019 to install their first small-scale plastic recycling machines, provided by Plastiki Rafiki, a start-up based in Nairobi. These machines shred, melt and extrude HDPE plastics into moulds to create colourful keyrings, giving this plastic waste a second life.
