Explain your project in details:

Poor waste management has been a major problem in many countries particularly the disposal of plastics. Aquatic life has suffered because of the disposal of plastic waste in water bodies and this has remained the biggest problem for many recycling innovators. Being one of them has made me realise that we can collaborate and work together to increase our recycling cycle and clear as much waste as possible from the environment. Our project seeks to bring together all waste management start-ups to embark on massive research and recycling work so as to reduce pollution. We have since started plastic and aluminium recycling and some of the products produced on a small scale are as follows: Green comforter Neck pillows Roofing Tiles Leg rest Sling bags Aluminium Pots Pulley Window frames Door and window handles Our vision is not limited as we continue researching more on how best we can add value to waste and spearhead the upcoming largest industry in waste management.

Sustainability and future plans

To add value to the waste in the environment and getting rid of it by reducing, reusing or recycling it. Our vision is to embark on the shredding of plastic and make various products out of plastic. We also intend to use the degradable waste to feed our biodigesters so as to produce energy to smelt aluminium and plastics. Our processes are interlinked and our vision is to create a green industry where all inputs produce clean outputs and waste will be re-absorbed and used again and again with less or no waste being dumped on the environment.
