Plastic lid success

Lagos Council collected more than 12 tonnes of plastic lids during a recycling campaign between 2006 and 2008.

Residents were urged to separate all plastic lids and take them to one of the allocated recycling points.

At the end of the campaign, the lids were sold on for commercial recycling, with money raised being used to benefit the region.

As a result, the special educational needs school NECI will receive a wheelchair and national charity Santa Casa da Misericórdia will get a wheelchair and other medical and orthopaedic equipment.
