On Wednesday 25th July 2020, Midel Center, a facility management company in Abuja launched its corporate recycling scheme in collaboration with Ecobarter. The scheme’s aim is to promote a recycling culture within the organization and amongst the other corporate organizations in facilities being managed by Midel.
The Midel Center, located in Gudu district of Abuja is committed to fostering environmental awareness and sustainability. This sustainability-conscious organization already have recycled bins place in different corners of their building to encourage sorting at source. At the launch of this scheme in July, a large bottle-shaped recycling bin was stationed by the main facility for easy access.
With over 30% of municipal solid wastes being easily recyclable, recycling is an effective way to reduce the volume of waste needed to be burnt or disposed while it also creates about 6 times more local jobs than traditional indiscriminate disposal along the value chain. Over 50kg of recyclables have been recovered in the pilot month and Ecobarter is glad to serve as the official recycling collection partner on this.
