Kenney Manning – Sustainable Destination Council in the Ministry
of Tourism, briefly expressed on Admiral’s Enterprise Ltd., stating that company has set in motion some level of recycling.

Mr Manning further pointed out, “Admiral’s Enterprise Ltd, more or less, collect bottles and plastic materials and then put them in a container and ship them overseas. I am aware that there is also an initiative being done in Nevis by some students and teachers who collect plastics and send them down to Admiral’s. It is a slow process, but hopefully, in time we will get a more methodical system.”

Realizing the significance of Recycling, the officials further declared that “Recycling is extremely important because waste has a huge negative impact on our environment and Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste, as well as offers an important environmental benefit by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases such as- carbon dioxide(CO2) methane, nitrous oxide, and chlorofluorocarbons – all of these contribute to environmental degradation.
