Two-part documentary on recycling to be released this Sunday

CM Recycling will release a documentary Sunday aimed at educating people on the state of the island's waste management and urging citizens to collectively play their part to achieving a cleaner, healthier Jamaica. 

The two-part documentary went into production last year and features interviews with a number of key stakeholders in the recycling and waste management industry in Jamaica, including Factories Cooperation of Jamaica, NEPA and UN Environment.  The documentary also features interviews with Senator Mathew Samuda and member of parliament Anthony Hylton, who speak on plastic and metal, respectively.

“CM Recycling saw the need to do this documentary as while there have been several calls to recycle the things we use, we believe it is important for Jamaicans to see how the things we use are produced, how they affect our environment when they are managed properly and how these things can be repurposed after being used," Hilroy Mcfarlane, the CEO of CM Recycling, said.

"We contacted all the major stakeholders who are charged with the responsibility to manage the waste of the country and we are grateful for everyone who gave us their support and opted to participate in this initiative after being contacted," he continued. "It is the hope of CM Recycling that we can garner a greater sense of responsibility for our waste and our role in managing it properly with this production”.

The two-part documentary will air on TVJ on Sunday, June 2 at 4:00 pm with part two set to air on Sunday, May 9, 2019, at 4:00 pm.
