3R after cyclone IDAI

3R-Reduzir, Reusar e Reciclar Limitada, is slowly bouncing back after cyclone Idai hit the port city of Beira about two weeks ago. The company reopened two Ecopoints where it buys plastic and other recyclable materials from catadores (wastepickers) and the first load of PET was processed for onward transfer to recycling industries in South Africa. Challenges remain, however, especially regarding access to electricity and continued concerns about a cholera outbreak.
