Community Zero Waste / Plastic waste to paving bricks

My project is about waste management and recycling. According to research, Rivers State produces about 10,000 tons of waste everyday, when projected by 36 States of Nigeria, we will be having 360,000 tons. This is a huge problem because waste causes decease, pollution and possibly death. Amidst the whole challenge, I saw great opportunity for youths employment through waste management and recycling. Waste is wealth and we are leveraging on waste for community transportation by training youths on how to convert waste useful products. We have incentivise the handling of waste to encourage residents keep their environment safe and clean.
