Dale Cozier, Senior Project Man-
ager of the Environmental Manage-
ment Authority (EMA), is calling
entrepreneurs to come forward.
Cozier was speaking at SM-
WCOL’s tour of the Beverage
Container Recycling Facility at
Namdevco compound in Sea Lots
“Entrepreneur should come for-
ward, it is a local product and an
opportunity for entrepreneurs to
convert waste into cash,” he said.
He said the waste material was
presently being used by a local
entrepreneur to create lumber to
“They use it to make
a product that could be
sold in the Caribbean,”
Cozier said there were
ongoing discussions with
other Caribbean islands
to sell T&T their recycla-
“This is not being done
at a government level.
The challenge is the ma-
chine process that cost
money and continues to
push it out. It has value in
our waste,” he said.
He said several coun-
tries even paid their citi-
zens a fee for taking their
“Instead of paying
landfill they could use it
as a plastic aggregate in
Cozier urged members
of the business commu-
nity to partner with them
in this recycling initiative.
Ronald Roach, Chief
Executive Office of the
T&T Solid Waste Manage-
ment Company Limited,
said he was hopeful that
the idea would come to
fruition in 2018 and make
it more viable.
“We had discussions
with manufacturers and
we want to be able to
create a product and not
being imported from the
US or some other coun-
try, “ he said.
He said even though
the company was operat-
ing the Government was
owing SWMCOL some $5
million in subvention.
“It is part of the situa-
tion the country faces.
The price (of recycla-
bles) is at an all time low
and with the problem in
China it is all time worse.
On monthly basis we re-
ceive $4000 or $5000,” he said.
He said there was a cost to waste
disposal and recycling represents
and option for waste disposal and
an operating cost.
He said there was an “unreal-
istic” idea that recycling makes
money and not study the benefits.
“If we did not recycle what
would be the result? It (waste ma-
terial) would go into a landfill and
last 100 years,” he said.
Roach said SWMCOL worked
with the government in these hard
“We do have to liaise with pay-
ments that is a reality but we are
working along with the govern-
ment to ensure that we have the
money we need to do and we need
to ensure the operation and we are
working closely with government,”
At the plant, Terri Anne Carter
La Fon, Manager of Recycling
and Recovery conducted a tour
of the plant and the recycling pro-
She said different types of the
material come to the recycling
plant but cardboard and paper
were not turned away.
La Fon said the plastics were
bailed according to the difference
of colour and material.
“Tetra packs, blue green bot-
tles, cardboard and even shredded
papers. We try not to turn away
recyclables. Once it is bailed it
is exported and it goes to the US
(United States) or Europe,” she
