GAYO to establish material recovery facility in Accra

Betty Osei Bonsu, project coordinator for Green Africa Youth Organization, GAYO, has revealed that her outfit has acquired a piece of land within the La Dade Kotopon municipality to establish a recycling center that will serve as a waste bank for the LaDMA communities.

Speaking to the press on Friday, March 11, Miss Osei-Bonsu did not give timelines but intimated that plans are far advanced to get the facility established.

“We have partnered with several organizations to acquire this piece of land to start up a recycling center. This will serve as a waste bank and I will call it the Material Recovery Facility, where we will collect segregated waste products.

“This project will only be possible if our communities come on board and contribute efficiently. Waste management must be everybody’s priority”. She added

Furthermore, GAYO had a successful day one of the “door-to-door sensitization project”. Betty Osei-Bonsu reiterated the essence of the project.

“Over the years we have been working with several communities, we realized the biggest issue to us was waste management. That’s the reason GAYO decided to launch the zero-waste project. This project seeks to educate indigenes of La Dade Kotopon municipality on waste management.

“We decided to go into three communities today to reach out to the people and provide them sacks to segregate their waste. We informed them that waste collectors will come to them to collect the segregated waste every weekend.

“We are here to stay, the material recovery facility will be just beside LaDMA municipal assembly. We believe that together with all stakeholders we can build the environment”.
