Recycling workshops are facilitated in order to educate local collectors, NGOs, waste pickers, EPWP workers, collector cooperatives and individuals, about waste management and economic opportunities in recycling.

Beyond general awareness on plastic production, recycling and waste management, the main aim is to support existing collectors to grow their business into well-run buy-back centres that will assist with the absorption of local recyclables and create more income opportunities. This is achieved through collaboration with stakeholders, who contribute tools of the trade such as scales, bailing machines, trailers etc. Before collectors can receive any support, training is given on the actual day to day operations of a recycling business to equip them with the necessary skills to run the buyback centre.
