Since last July when the company began its participation in the National Environment and Planning Agency’s Adopt-a-Beach programme, a total of more than 500 kilogrammes of material has been recycled and approximately 1,000 kilogrammes of waste processed in the kiln. Another 500 kilogrammes of waste material have been sent to the Riverton landfill in Kingston.
