  • Wecyclers gives households and organizations a chance to capture value from their waste while providing a reliable supply of materials to the local recycling industry. Wecyclers works in partnership with the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) and collects recyclable waste, including plastic bottles, plastic bags, and aluminum cans, using low-cost bicycle-powered collection vehicles called “wecycles”, vans and trucks.
