Green XChange Project collects 4.96 tonnes of recyclables

THE 9th Green Xchange Project yesterday collected 4.96 tonnes of recyclables consisting of paper, plastic bottles, aluminium and metals.

The project, organised by the Society for Community Outreach and Training (SCOT) at the Kampong Batu Marang Mosque in Mentiri, was participated by 80 youth volunteers from various schools, colleges, Kampong Batu Marang and higher institutions.

Villagers were encouraged to collect recyclable materials and exchange them for basic commodities such as rice. For every $1 of recyclables, the participants received 1.5 kilogrammes of rice, and 1,030kg of rice were exchanged yesterday.

According to the SCOT programme leader Dayangku Nurul Khairunnisa binti Pengiran Haji Mohd Roslin, the objectives of the project were to inculcate a culture of recycling amongst Bruneians as well as to educate low-income earners on entrepreneurship opportunities through effective waste management.
