What is the potential for recycling waste in African cities?
Glad\'s HouseConsulting
We have visited the Kibera Community Cooker a number of times and are working with Planning Systems to build one for our Charity, Glad's House' in the Magongo twonship in Mombasa. We are going to add commercial activities at the site to make it financially workable. We have approach Mombasa City Council about building a running a number of these across the city - but got nowhere.

Waste recycling business really has good potential in cities of developing countries. A simple observation tells us that majority of wastes in African countries are source of imported materials from Non-Africa countries. The reason for wastes to escalate is due to low level of recycling practice and as awell as capacity. Therefore, this among many other reasons, tells us that cities in African countries have good potential for recycling.
