RT @Prof_LGodfrey We've seen these app-based waste collection services emerge elsewhere in Africa, linking waste generators to independent collectors, and it's now arrived in South Africa with the "Waste Recycling App" (Wrapp Waste) engineeringnews.co.za/print-v… pic.twitter.com/KkMmD974BJ
@adesuwagreen @YusufRigasa I agree abt safety condns, tho there is a diff between formalising & professionalising waste workers. @Prof_LGodfrey spoke about this @ ISWA2018, making a strong case for the latter imo, enabling ppl to keep their independence & entrepreneurialism rather than becoming gov staff.
Open dumping & burning of waste also contributes to #malnutrition, via environmental enteropathy: the lining of the intestine doesn't develop properly, so small children cannot absorb the nutrients in their food. #wastematters twitter.com/WaterAidPress/…
RT @RebeccaH2020 😡 SHOCKING 😥 A video taken by environmentalist Martin Hutchinson showing truck loads of waste, including a lot of plastic being deliberately dumped into a tributary of the Amazon river in Peru. #Tiredearth #EndPlasticPollution #BreakFreeFromPlastic #ocean pic.twitter.com/ldUBHEkqCw
RT @CCACoalition 2 in 5 people lack access to waste management, which results in trash being openly burned in many parts of the world. We have solutions to eliminate the open burning of waste, and quickly reduce its negative impacts on the climate and air quality. circularonline.co.uk/news/bla…
