In a collaborative effort aimed at promoting sustainable practices and community-driven environmental responsibility, Diamond Waste Recycling Limited has partnered with Pakam, the Local Economic Development Association, and Community Action against Plastic Waste (CAPWS) to empower women and youths in turning waste into wealth.

The initiative envisions a future where recycling not only contributes to waste reduction but also creates economic opportunities for those involved.

During the launch of the new recycling hub, Jacinta Anyaeri, Co-founder of Diamond Waste Recycling Limited, emphasized the commitment to empowering individuals by demonstrating how recycling can mitigate environmental hazards and create jobs.

“We strive to maximize the recycling potential of everyone.

We are a growing community coaching a culture of sustainability and inspiring others to join the movement towards a cleaner and healthier world,” Anyaeri stated.

Akinsanya Lasisi Ayinde, Executive Chairman of Ikotun Local Council Development Area (LCDA), commended the efforts of the recycling companies during the launch, where four tricycles were provided for the hub.

Ayinde encouraged people of all ages to embrace the opportunity, recognizing it as a source of income and a proper means of waste disposal.

He also urged Nigerians not to be discouraged but to give the current administration time to revamp the country’s economy.

The initiative is set to revolutionize waste management practices and contribute to both environmental sustainability and economic development.
