An eco-friendly building will soon be constructed in Non-Pareil, East Coast Demerara, after a combined effort from the Greenhouse Club and members of the community.The fence around the building was constructed with tyresThis was revealed by Public Relations Officer of the Non Pareil Greenhouse Club, Anthony Stanislaus, who revealed that plans are being finalised to construct the building using unwanted materials such as plastic bottles and unwanted tyres, among other non-biodegradable waste items.The building, which will be 1400 square feet, will serve as a multipurpose centre and will benefit the community in the long run.“We will use the glass bottle by breaking it up and put it in the cement mixture, which will strengthen the mixture and get rid of the glass bottle. As for the tyres, we will be using (them) to make the fence with…”He explained that the club will use about 1000 tyres for the fence and some parts of the building, while the plastic bottles will be used to replace concrete hollow blocks by filling them with the cement mixture. This, he stated, will reduce the amount of waste being burnt by the community, reduce pollution, and prevent flooding due to blockages caused by excess plastics.“The building will have a normal column, beams and foundation made of cement; but now, instead of using hollow blocks, we putting plastic bottles. So now this will help to get rid of all the plastic bottles in the drainage and canal system and also lying around the places. So it will keep a clean and healthy environment”, Anthony Stanislaus related.In addition, he stated, “Old tyres take 80 years to decompose, and glass bottle take 1 million years to decompose. So now instead of burning plastic bottle and tyres, which would cause air pollution, we will be using (them) as building materials which are durable and strong.”The project is being undertaken with the aim of spreading awareness on the hazardous effects that improper disposal of waste can have on the environment. The group is also encouraging other communities to venture into such projects.The project, which commenced in September, 2016, is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
