Latest Initiative by John Keells Group’s Plasticcycle with Department of National Zoological Gardens

The newest addition to the Plasticcycle initiative is the collaboration with the Department of National Zoological Gardens to place plastic collection bins at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, Pinnawala Zoo, Dehiwala Zoo and Ridiyagama Safari Park which generate significant amounts of recyclable plastics.

In addition to spreading awareness on Refusing, Reducing & Reusing Plastics, this initiative provides avenues for responsible disposal of recyclable plastic waste by placing collection bins at key locations.

Plasticcycle has to date recycled over 15 Metric tons of Plastic waste and will continue its commitment to reducing plastic pollution in Sri Lanka. Popular attractions such as the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and the Dehiwala Zoo observe a high influx of local and foreign tourists which peak during weekends and the holiday season with most tourists consuming plastic water bottles while travelling.
