The Chief of the Mallam community, Nana Daasebre Ndum, who was also present thanked Malta Guinness for such an initiative to raise community awareness towards fostering a culture of proper waste disposal procedures.

He stated that not only will the initiative help to reduce plastic pollution in the community but will unlock other opportunities for economic empowerment through plastic recycling.

While on the ground, the team from Guinness Ghana organised an exciting plastic collection challenge which was keenly contested by hundreds of participants. The people of the community were divided into teams and tasked with collection of used plastic materials in the vicinity. Winners were rewarded with exciting souvenirs and cans of Malta Guinness.

The ‘Malta Guinness Plastic Collection Campaign’ aims to motivate Ghanaians to adopt positive attitudes and promote proper plastic recycling practices.

So far, the initiative has been held in Alogboshie and Kaase and is expected to be organised in other parts of the country.

Malta Guinness will partner with community leaders to educate residents about the importance of recycling plastic waste. As part of the initiative, buyback centers (plastic collection centers) will be set up in Accra and Kumasi as part of efforts to manage plastic sustainably.
