01.06.2016 – Please be advised that the collection of material from our network of plastic collection bins will cease (hopefully temporarily) from Friday June 3rd 2016. It is truly heart-wrenching that this action has become necessary during the week leading up to World Environment Day.

To date Plastikeep has not received funding from the Green Fund for this current phase of operations which began on 1st January 2016. Vendors, including Plastikeep team members, have not been paid since December 2015. On 25th May, 2016, Plastikeep received notice that Waste Disposals Ltd. will cease clearing our bins on 3rd June, 2016.

This situation has arisen due to the delay in the appointment of the Green Fund Advisory Committee. This Committee functions as the oversight Board for the Green Fund Executing Unit – which actually funds Plastikeep – and its approval is necessary for funded projects such as Plastikeep to receive grants from the Green Fund. At this time Plastikeep is not the only organization or entity being adversely affected by the non-appointment of a Board.

Plastikeep will be placing notices on all our bins and we are asking the public to abstain from placing any material in the bins until further notice.

We eagerly look forward to resuming our full recycling recovery efforts and wish to thank all our stakeholders for their support, encouragement, and understanding at this time.
