Waste management leaders in West Africa, Zoomlion Ghana Limited has unveiled an ultramodern technology driven, multipurpose and integrated waste recovery park in the capital Accra.
The facility which is designed to serve as a waste recovery hub will process every other waste into usable raw materials or finished products for human use.
The centre has the capacity to crush and turn PET bottles into pellets which would be used by a sister company, Universal Plastic Product Recycling Limited (UPPR) to produce waste bins and bin liners to be distributed to households and corporate entities for waste collection, recycle general plastics, organic composting, tyre recycling, metals, wood and glass among others.

The centre will recycle over 90% of all kinds of waste and add value to make it a resource which will largely reduce the importation of chemical fertilizer and other plastic products and introduce organic compost to drive Ghana back to organic food production and consumption.
At a well attended ceremony in Accra to commission the park, the Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies and owner of Zoomlion Ghana Limited Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong stated his unapologetic resolve to help President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and government for that matter to achieve his vision of a cleaner Accra and largely Ghana.
In furtherance of his commitment to support the president’s agenda he said 16 other such plants have been procured to replicate the technology in all regional capitals.
To guarantee that he is walking the talk, Dr. Agyepong gave the assurance that by the end of August 2019 similar facilities will be dully commissioned in the cities of Takoradi, Kumasi and Tamale to begin operations.
The facility has the capacity to process 400 tons of waste in a day, 2000 tons in a week and 8000 in a month.
