Waste Resource Collection
We collect waste materials from organised housing and commercial estates. Upon contractual agreement, households sort wastes at source into two streams of Trash and Recyclables. On schedule days, the Ecobarter recovery team recovers both streams from partner organisations using our collection truck.

Championed by young people in different communities, we have Ecobarter drop-off centers in 5 localities in Abuja (and counting).
