The Importance of Recycling in Turks & Caicos
It is vital to recycle in Turks and Caicos because we are a small island community with a limited landfill. There are also major environmental impacts of a landfill; a landfill produces a liquid called leachate, which contaminates the ground and eventually the marine environment.
Tourism is key to the sustainability of this country, and what attracts the tourists is our beautiful water. Therefore, is imperative that we continue to keep this island “Beautiful by Nature” thru recycling.
