Selikor wants to recycle 80% by 2030
WILLEMSTAD - It will take at least 15 years before Curaçao recycles most of its waste. This is according to Selikor director Wesley Cook.
At this time, one-quarter of the waste is treated and reused. That should be eighty percent by 2030. To achieve that Curaçao should move to separate waste collection.
Cook explained the principal reasons why it is necessary to introduce a modern system to deal with waste. “The waste issue is growing continuously in our community and alternatives and new methods must be found to eliminate it. As the company in charge of waste management in Curaçao, Selikor is closely following innovative technologies in order to guarantee a responsible management and contribute to a sustainable environment. Taking into account the amount of waste that Selikor registers every day at landfill Malpais, it becomes imperative to take the necessary steps to prolong the life of our landfill.”
