WASTE MANAGEMENT HUBS
We have set up a number of urban and peri-urban recycling points to aid communities in Lilongwe. The hubs will demonstrate waste legislation compliance and duty of care, whilst promoting Malawian practical skills and knowledge sharing. We are creating jobs to help encourage positive behaviour change and reduce poverty.
RECYCLING CENTRE AT LILONGWE WILDLIFE CENTRE
Every Thursday and Saturday 9am - 5pm
All DMR (Dry Mixed Recyclable) waste is collected, sorted and weighed at Area 13 Lilongwe Waste Transfer Station where the waste is sold to income generation community led projects.
RECYCLING SHOP AT LILONGWE WILDLIFE CENTRE
Last Saturday of every month at the Farmer's Market. 50MWK/kg to drop off your recycling.
Paper, plastic (NO styrofoam), tins / cans (NO aluminium foil), glass.
Income generation from eco waste products gives communities incentives to recycle waste. The promotion of this circular economy is key.
ROSEVINE CAFE & RESTAURANT
CCM are currently building a recycling point at Rosevine Cafe & Restaurant in Area 3, Lilongwe. ICCM and Rosevine decided to hold a Recycling Market Event to raise money for the recycling point. This will be an education hub dedicated to sharing knowledge and information about valuable agri waste solutions and eco waste products.
REQUESTING YOUR SUPPORT
PAY A SALARY
By donating £40 per month, you can employ a Waste Innovator to work at our recycling hubs for at least 1 day per week. This will provide them with job security so that they can provide for themselves and their family.
We are looking for spare tools so that our Waste Innovators can turn waste into innovative products which they can then sell. If you have any tools in this list, please get in touch and share these with us.
SHARE OUR SPACE
We would love individuals and businesses to come and share our space at our recycling hubs. Use this space for free for recycling, education, and support our on-site shops.
