In Africa's urban centres, only about 43% of waste is formally collected and only about 7% is recycled. At the same time, waste recycling offers good employment opportunities for the local population. sequa is therefore implementing a GIZ-funded project to improve the circular economy in Ethiopia, Ghana and Kenya with the support of the German association "Circular Economy 4 Africa". The aim is to improve waste management and create and secure jobs in the sector.
