This space was occupied by a Plastikeep bin!
In a short few days, it has been transformed to –
A dump … An eyesore!
Responsible Minister, get your finger out and do what you were voted in to do – help us to make this a better place. Otherwise, you stand accused of facilitating the complete degradation of our environment.
Plastikeep was doing a good job. They encouraged us to separate and dispose of our plastics in a responsible manner. With the absence of their collection bins now, our trash will revert to an “all in” approach which adds to our high level of plastic pollution.
What I don’t understand is why the monies in the Green Fund are no longer available to Platikeep. In addition, the green fund levy was increased in the last budget. By way of explanation, “The green fund levy is payable by all companies and unincorporated entities, including partnerships” … taken from the Parliament Website.
Why is this not simply a process of drawing down on the available funds to carry out the project?
Plastikeep needs our support. We can survive problematic politicians, corrupt decision makers but not a contaminated environment.
