Bin donation to schools and training of students on segregation

An Environment360 member of staff, Israel educating the students on how to effectively segregate the waste they gather

A total of 18 public schools in the Tema New Town community who received recycling bins as a donation from Ghana Recycling Initiate by Private Enterprises (GRIPE) and DOW Chemicals West Africa were educated and trained on how to effectively segregate the waste that they generated.

The exercise which was undertaken by the waste pickers under the Pick-It Project with assistance from Environment360, was to ensure that the level of contamination in collected plastic waste from the schools was very minimal and to equally ensure that the school kids understood the essence of segregating their waste to help keep their environment clean. The exercise, in addition, educated the school children to adopt the culture of reducing and reusing their waste. 

The schools that received the training exercise are:

  • Manhean Anglican 'C' Primary School, 

  • Manhean Presby 'A' Primary School, 

  • Manhean Anglican A & B Primary School

  • Manhean Anglican 'D' Primary School

  • Manhean Anglican JHS                        

  • Manhean Community Primary School         

  • Manhean TMA '2' JHS                        

  • Manhean TMA '1' JHS                      

  • Manhean Presby 'B' Primary School           

  • Naval Base Primary                        

  • Naval Base JHS                        

  • Naval Base KG                        

  • Menhean S.D.A Basic School                     

  • Menhean TMA Primary 'A'                        

  • St Peter's R/C Basic School                        

  • Adjetey Ansah JHS                      

  • Manhean TMA Primary School 'B'                

  • Manhean Methodist Basic School

Waste pickers from the Pick-It project will be collecting on a regular basis, the plastic waste generated in these schools at no cost to the schools. The Collected waste will be sent to the Sorting Centre to feed into the recycling value chain.
