Lahore: Nestlé Pakistan, District Council Hunza, Gilgit Baltistan Waste Management Company (GBWMC) and Karakoram Area Development Organization (KADO) have signed an MoU for “Clean Hunza Project”. The project is supported by the company’s NESTLÉ FRUITA VITALS and NESTLÉ PURE LIFE brands.

“Clean Hunza Project”, is part of District Council Hunza initiative to make it the first plastic bag free location in the country. Nestle’s participation in the project will focus on waste segregation, management of the site and recycling system for Hunza – a popular tourist destination – with District Council Hunza, GBWMC and support from KADO for raising awareness in the communities.

Nestlé Pakistan’s partnership in the initiative will encourage waste management of 150,000 kgs of plastics annually in Phase I, followed by collection of 50,000 kgs paper packaging (used beverage cartons) in Phase II in the area with an increase of 10% annually.

The project’s focus will be on the segregation of plastics and paper packaging at the waste site which, after the compressing and bailing process, will be brought down the country for recycling. Nestlé Pakistan will provide a compressing and bailing unit to the Hunza district government.***
