• Today, Tropical Recycling creates 36 direct jobs, and between 1,500-2,000 indirect jobs.

  • Within our first two years and a half of operations we have collected over 12 Million Pounds of PET and HDPE plastic.

  • 95% percent of these bottles are bought from the general public.

  • Over the next two years, we intend on creating 60 additional direct employments along with 2,500 additional indirect employments.

  • With Tropical Recycling, the simple act of collecting plastic results in vital sources of revenue that benefit entire communities.

  • A person collecting plastic as a full time job will easily earn between 500-1,000 gourdes per day – well over the set minimum wage.

  • Tropical Recycling’s impact in Haiti is enormous. Low literacy rates can make it very difficult for the average citizen to find proper employment. Putting a purchase-value on plastic bottles has given some of the most vulnerable people in our society the opportunity to earn a living and provide for their families.
