Over 300,000 metric tonnes of plastic waste generated in the 36 states of Nigeria daily, from which less than 20% is currently being recycled. This waste more often finds its way to:
- Landfills, which destroys the aesthetic value of the landscape and the burning of the wastes produce harmful green house gases which increase carbon footprint and contributes to climate change.
- In drainage channels, preventing free flow of drainage which precipitates severe flooding that takes lives and destroys property.
It is obvious that there is an urgent need for a robust nationwide plastic recycling/upcycling platform, the consequences of the absence of which are far-reaching.
