The Division of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment (DIQE) will launch a pilot project in plastic recycling this month and a waste oil recycling project in early 2020.

DIQE Secretary Kwesi Des Vignes spoke about the new initiatives at the International Coastal Clean Up last month. Des Vignes has been making the call for Tobagonians to take better care of the island and encourage fellow citizens to recycle.

There will be a second cleanup on October 20th with activities geared towards increasing awareness of pollution’s harmful impact on both the environment and its inhabitants, including ocean life.
