Waste Masters 4

Don’t waste your waste: durable recycling of plastic.

Due to a strong population growth, urbanisation and economic growth in developing countries like Uganda, waste management has become a critical issue. A decent waste management system is absent. Household waste is rarely collected, and as a result it gets dumped on illegal dumping sites or at the side of the road, buried or even burned in private gardens. The treatment of this solid waste forms a major challenge for local authorities, in which participation of both formal and informal companies will be of critical importance.

Several small companies in Uganda try to provide a solution for this waste issue. Waste Masters Ltd. is one of these companies and has been collecting household waste from his clients in and around the capital Kampala for a couple of years. The goal of the manager, Chrispin Lutalo, is to provide everyone in the surrounding areas with a durable waste management system. Humasol wants to assist him where possible. The majority of the collected waste is organic, and can be converted into valuable compost. Waste Masters 1 and 2 worked together with Waste Masters Ltd. to encourage his clients into separating the inorganic and organic fraction, and compost the latter. Waste Masters 3 is continuing this task at the moment, as we will do too. However, there is still a large inorganic fraction that consists of plastic, metal and many other components. We will search for a durable way to recycle the plastic and give it a second life.
