Composting And Recycling Municipal Waste In Accra.

Zoomlion, the largest waste collector in Ghana, developed the first large scale waste treatment plant in the country providing jobs, technology transfer and environmental benefits.

The composting plant inaugurated in 2012 processes 600 tonnes of municipal waste per day and includes sorting, composting and recycling facilities. The organic fraction of the waste is converted into compost for agricultural activities, reducing greenhouse gas emissions that would have occurred in the business as usual scenario of landfilling practices in the country.
