PET Bottle Collection And Recycling Effort During Festival Proves Successful

August 18, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Nearly 4.5 tons of empty, discarded plastic PET bottles that once contained water, fruit juice, and carbonated soft drinks, were collected for recycling during the recent Kataragama Perahera Festival in Sri Lanka. The effort, dubbed “Give Back Life” to the recyclable bottles, was supported and sponsored by Coca-Cola Beverages Sri Lanka Ltd., which partnered with a local waste management company to place an array of 1,000-liter and 5,000-liter bins in accessible locations. The festival ran from July 24 through August 10.
