Pick-It Moving Forward: Construction of the first sorting center in Tema Newtown
The first sorting center for the pick-it pilot project under construction in Tema Newtown.
As part of the second pillar of the Pick-It! Project, seeing the construction of the first sorting center in progress was one of the defining moments for the waste picker’s organization and the project. The structure will be outfitted with motorized collection tricycles, sorting equipment, and compacting equipment. In previous workshops, the waste pickers engaged the architect by sharing ideas on how they wanted the interior of the sorting center to be. The building will be completed in June, in time for the launch of the sorting center business for waste pickers.
Partners: Fan Milk, Environment360, MIT and WIEGO.
