FREETOWN WASTE

Freetown Waste is a Waste Recycling and Rubber Manufacturing Company aimed at reducing the amount of scrap tyres into reusable, eco-friendly rubber moulded products.

Freetown Waste is committed to tackling challenges such as rising level of unemployment, environmental pollution, carbon emission and general environmental sustainability.

Freetown Waste is willing to partner with cooperate organizations/company to convert waste tyres to reusable products, thereby keying into Nigeria’s environmental sustainability programs.

FREEE Recycling Program is consistent with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1, 12 and13. We collect waste tyres and recycle them into rubber flooring products and other items thereby, creating employment and protecting our environment.

The recycling of waste tyres reduces the number of tyres in drainages and landfills which serve as breeding grounds for mosquitoes and other disease carrying insects and rodents. Reduction of these landfills and drainages significantly reduces the chances of malaria infections, inadvertently reducing mortalities from malaria related infections.

According to WHO (World Malaria Report 2020 (who.int), the mortality rate from malaria related cases is about 0.18%. An average of 20 tyres can block 1 drainage and 1 drainage can service an average of 20 Households, with each household comprising of 5 individuals. This implies that a single tyre directly impacts 5 individuals.

For every tyre recycled, 5 people are impacted and mortalities that may have resulted from malaria related cases would be prevented.

Tyre recycling also reduces carbon emissions caused by burning of tyres, thereby protecting the environment from pollution.
