WHY WE DO IT
Nigeria generates approximately 276,000 metric tonnes of waste daily.
Report shows that more than 40% of household generated waste ends up on our streets and drainage causing obstruction to free flow of water. A little over 20% of generated wastes are dumped around our neighborhoods.
Sadly, more than 40% of generated wastes are taken to landfill sites. Unfortunately, only 32% of wastes on our landfill sites are degradable.
I never even thought about the fact that discarded tyres could be of more use to us from onset but my experience at Pearl Recycling has taught me a lot and made me understand that
NOTHING is actually a WASTE
Early Before now I did not know waste could be reused for something good. I had the believe that when it’s waste then the product remains nothing but WASTE.
Personally, my Mindset Changed
After my training with Pearl Recycling, my notion about WASTE changed. Now for every waste, i see a useful aspect of it.
The training has enlightened me on ways to control the level of waste we have in Nigeria
Pearl Recycling Training has really changed my thinking about waste. It has also equipped me with skills and ideas about how i can change the waste around me.
This training opened my inner mind to some of my abandoned projects.
The training has changed my view about waste in the sense that i now see waste as a goldmine with untapped potentials.
I no longer see waste as dirt or something to run away from but, something to dig into and RECYCLE
The training has impacted me a lot. I got so many ideas of how I can turn waste to furniture, use it for decorations and playgrounds.
I learnt how to use waste tyres to make furniture.
