来源: 作者: 发布时间:2011-01-15  

The boom in scavenging across the four major dump sites of Lagos, Nigeria has opened the government's eyes to the potential of recycling according to a report in the Lagos Daily Independent.

Lagos, Nigeria an emerging mega-city generates over 9000 tons of waste per day. Due to this volume, scavenging has been booming as the rag pickers ransack the four major dumpsites across the state to source for used items that could be sold and recycled. They reportedly believe so much believe in the business that they refer to waste trucks as consignments that have brought in goods to be cleared.

Having realised the importance of recycling, the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) initiated support for Public/Private Partnership Participation and employment opportunity in resource recovery through the Waste to Wealth programme such as; Nylon Plastic Recycling, Kraft paper collection and buy back programme from scavengers.

Today, some of the qualified scavengers are manning recycling banks being sited at various parts of the state as resourced persons just as the state government has adopted the 3 Rs Reuse Recycle & Reduce strategy in waste management.

According to the Lagos Daily Independent, at the moment the city recycles 18% of its waste, and is hoping to achieve 35% by 2012. Waste to compost is at 10%, plastic recycling at 7%, and paper bailing 1%.
