Lilongwe Wildlife Centre
ICCM design and construct recycling points out of recycled waste as an education tool for the public. We train communities about the process of waste collection, sorting and reuse. This introduces communities to seeing waste as a resource and therefore provides incentives and encourages people to manage the point.
Community Recycling Projects
Chinsapo, a peri-urban, unplanned housing settlement in Lilongwe funded by the Scouter Charitable Trust in partnership with Waste Aid.
- Make a recycling point for waste collection.
- Run a meeting to sensitise the community on waste management.
- Train members of the community in waste collection.
- Train 20 women how to run business turning waste into products for sale.
We will also be working with the community of Mtandire, a peri-urban, unplanned housing settlement in Lilongwe to build an ICCM Waste Management and Innovation Hub. This is a 10 month project funded by the Irish Embassy.
1. To increase the knowledge and attitudes of project beneficiaries towards waste management.
2. To empower project beneficiaries with skills development to generate income through selling waste innovations.
3. To build a sustainable community space to recycle, test and develop waste innovations.
As a result young men and women understand the environmental and health issues caused by poor waste management and see waste as a resource, young women generate income through selling waste innovations (products made out of recycling), and a community space exists for a recycling point and system and to test and develop waste innovations.
