Network for Sanitation Concerns and Solutions (NESCOS) Director Lloyd Siame said the organisation targets to install 1500 waste recycling bins in Lusaka.
Speaking during the launch of waste recycling project dubbed “Waste Recycling Bin in Lusaka”.
Mr Siame said the project has since commenced and some townships roads have so far benefited.
He said the bin installing programme will be extended to all township roads in the city.
Mr Siame disclosed that so far the project has created employment for 100 people who will be collecting and maintaining the bins.
He said NESCOS intends to carry out a sensitization programme in the communities and establish waste skills centres so that the project can be successful.
Mr Siame said NESCOS will also be collecting waste and sell to Recycling Companies who will be transforming the waste into usable products.
He commended the Lusaka City Council (LCC) for its quest to making sure that the city is kept clean.
And Action Auto Managing Director Mike Bently said his company is happy to partner with NESCOS as the initiative will help in creating a culture of cleanliness amongst people.
Mr Bently noted that the programme is going to help in lessening pollution, and contribute to the wellbeing of the economy in the country through job creation and income generation.
