#LagosIsRecycling is an initiative in partnership with the Lagos State Government.
The goal of the initiative is to build a low-cost waste collection infrastructure while raising general awareness on the importance of recycling for environmental sustainability and social welfare.
"We came up with the #LagosIsRecycling campaign because we wanted a system that would position waste as a solution instead of a problem in our society," said Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola, CEO of Wecyclers. "With this initiative, Wecyclers in partnership with Lagos State Waste Management (LAWMA) is encouraging Nigerians to recycle their household items thereby promoting a cleaner and healthier Lagos.”
Wecyclers is also leading the campaign in partnership with various organizations including the Lagos State Waste Management (LAWMA), Unilever, DHL, Nigerian Bottling Company, UKAID, FCMB, and others.
To recycle your waste via Wecyclers #LagosIsRecycling initiative, simply take a picture of the items you plan to recycle and post on social media using the hashtag #LagosIsRecycling and the Wecyclers team will reach out to you.
You will be rewarded with redeemable points based on the volume and quality of recyclables that you provide.
