Our Vision for Province De L’Equator

The situation in the Province De L’Equator is very poor and there is little or no waste management infrastructure. There are also significant gaps in other infrastructure so there are many competing pressures for resources. Our focus is to provide significant improvements in public health via better waste management practices in as short a period as possible. We will achieve this by focussing on the following –

  • Clearing blocked drainage channels to allow water to flow freely
  • Provide waste collection system focussing on three waste streams – combination of collection system and bring system.
  • Organic waste converted to compost to be sued locally
  • Recyclate material, separated and value recovered
  • And final waste stream to secure well constructed landfill
  • The target is to achieve an overall recycling and reuse rate of over 90%

There are many areas of concern however the next immediate areas of concern include –

  • Abattoir waste
  • Condition of markets
