Plasticcycle – A John Keells Group Initiative.

John Keells Holdings has newly introduced the project Plasticcycle in the hope of reducing plastic usage in Sri Lanka. And you can be part of it!

Plasticcycle is committed to making a difference by:

  1. Working towards becoming plastic neutral by supporting responsible disposal of plastics to optimize recycling.
  2. Consciously reduce our plastic footprint when making purchase decisions or considering business opportunities.
  3. Sensitizing our supply chains, our people and our customers on plastic usage and managing plastic waste.
  4. Create awareness about the impact of plastic consumption and the resultant plastic waste.

Plasticcycle was launched in July 2017 in two wards belonging to the Colombo Municipal Council located in Colombo 2 (Wekanda and Hunupitiya) with the intention of adopting the learnings from the pilot in expanding the project.

Under this initiative John Keells Holdings has introduced bins to collect plastic waste for recycling. The project, which initially began with just three bins, has now expanded with bins being placed across many of the Keells Super outlets in and around Colombo. To find a bin near you, head over here.

The manufacture of plastic, as well as its destruction by incineration, pollutes air, land and water. Synthetic plastic does not biodegrade but accumulates in landfills and pollutes the environment. 

Plastics are a municipal waste nightmare, prompting local governments all over the world to implement plastic bag, and increasingly, styrofoam bans.

Change has to start with each and every individual. We can all take the pledge to: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle plastics. Start right now by recycling plastics and using Plasticcycle Bins, it's super easy.

USING THE  BIN:  Plasticcycle bins are designed to easily dispose of recyclable plastic. 

  • There are two clearly marked slots in the bins – one for plastic bags, the other for harder plastic like bottles and cups.

  • Rinse plastic containers with water before dropping them off.

  • Put in your plastic one at a time rather than tied up in a bag.

  • Flatten out plastic bottles to expel as much air as possible.

Plasticcycle is a John Keells Group Initiative with a vision of being the catalyst in significantly reducing plastic pollution in Sri Lanka.
