City Waste Recycling
Establishing formal and responsible waste and e-waste management
CWR recycles waste ranging from e-waste and batteries to sawdust and plastic, which it sources from local industries and waste collectors in the city of Ho. From this waste, CWR generates products such as plastic pellets, printed circuit boards and biogas (compost) and exports recycled e-waste products.
CWR currently represents the only formal e-waste recycling company in Ghana, a country with a major informal e-waste processing problem.
City Waste Recycling Ltd manages waste processing as well as marketing and distribution of recycled products.
Oeko Institut, a research institution in Freiburg, Germany, facilitates expert advice to CWR through a government-funded project.
FanMilk Ghana Ltd provided a pre-financing capital investment to CWR in 2009 and continues to be a major sponsor to the enterprise.
The Environmental Protection Agency of Ghana provides legal frameworks, compliance and notification procedures to CWR.
The 2016 SAG-SEED Awards are supported by the SWITCH-Africa Green project, which is implemented by UNEP with the assistance of the European Union.
