“Most plastic packaging by consumers is used only once and then sent to landfill or ends up in drains, illegal dumps, and on our beaches. To counter this, Guinness Ghana signed a landmark partnership with Coliba Ghana to fund 10 plastic bottle buy-back centres in Accra and Kumasi to collect plastic bottles after consumers’ use, to stimulate and increase collection and recycling rates,” Corporate Relations Director, Sylvia Owusu-Ankomah noted in an interview.

“Alogboshie is home for us and with a long and shared history with this community that dates back to the 1960s, we deemed it relevant to kickoff this campaign here and extend it to other areas across the country.”
