Green Compass Recycling

E-waste is currently one of the fastest growing waste streams globally, with growth rates of about 5% per annum. In 2016, the world generated over 44 million metric tonnes of e-waste, while only 20% was recycled through appropriate channels.

It is increasingly difficult to ignore increasing e-waste challenges, especially in emerging economies and developing countries. Additionally, e-waste is rich in valuable raw materials, like gold, copper, aluminum.

Against this background, Green Compass Recycling was set up to introduce the principles of the circular economy to Africa. We are one of the pioneers in the development of the formal e-waste recycling industry in Nigeria.
