We collect plastic waste from residents - sort, crush and recycle them into useful products such as plastic paving bricks. Uncollected trash is a huge problem in Rivers State, the southern region of Nigeria. The waste mountain grows up to 10,000 tons every day, and the traditional waste collections by local authorities have always been inadequate, particularly in poorer neighbourhoods. Our goal is to use waste collection and recycling as a way of bringing about social change in the poorest neighbourhoods in Rivers state, on the premise that plastic waste is a valuable raw material for the the production of plastic paving bricks. We have created a sustainable plan to ensure that most of the value will go back to the residents who collect the waste, so residents earn money by cleaning up, and the environment is benefiting from that as well....
