Recycling awareness campaign launched

  • Collection of waste in Luanda streets
Luanda – An awareness campaign dubbed recycling month was lunched on Tuesday in Luanda by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Environment in partnership with the National Waste Agency.

The intention is to raise awareness among people on the need to separate the waste at home and avoid inadequate dumping.

The campaign also aims to promote interaction with managers of the markets on setting up recycling bins to separate waste. 

The process will allow the families to generate profits, as they can sell the waste produced by recycling companies. 

According to the CEO of the National Waste Agency, Nelma Caetano, the activity will run for three months and is intended to raise awareness among citizens on dealing with the waste issues. 

“The production of waste in Angola has increased. This process is coupled with the population growth and the development of cities as well as consumption levels”, she said, calling for greater responsibilities for an efficient collection service.  

She explained that the Government opened a funding line for a waste recovery project, mainly for those entities that want selective collection or door-to-door service. 

An international public tender for the management and requalification of  Mulenvo  Sanitary landfill has been underway, aimed at encouraging families to take waste issue seriously.
