What is the mission of De Statiegeld B.V.? And how does it work?
Our mission is a cleaner and greener Bonaire. No more glass to the landfill and along the side of the road. We want to achieve this by introducing the sale of deposit money on bottles (statiegeld), which we, as most probably already know, have been busy with for quite a while.
We are regularly asked if people can also return glass other than deposit bottles to us... The answer is yes, we would very much like to collect ALL the glass so that we can recycle it!!
How does it work?
For the residents/entrepreneurs on Bonaire it's a small step, but the impact on Bonaire will be of great significance: The amount of waste on the landfill will not grow (and perhaps even shrink on the long term), the island will become cleaner, we create employment, and raw material (sand) is obtained that benefits construction.
At this moment more than 60 entrepreneurs on Bonaire have taken the step to contribute. The Statiegeld B.V. hopes that all residents, and more entrepreneurs, on Bonaire are aware that this is THE way to keep our island attractive for all who love Bonaire.
Hopi bon tòg!!!
