Welcome to the Trash To Cash Academy
This is an advanced training on recycling for adults. We cover topics such as landscaping, event decoration, household items, tyre furniture, and much more.
The main focus of this programme is to explore the profitability of proper waste management. Trainees also learn how to structure and grow their businesses.
According to a report by the World Bank Urban Development Series, over 70 million tons of municipal solid waste is generated in Africa annually. This figure is expected to exceed 150 million tons by the year 2025. Unfortunately, only about 10% of this waste is currently being collected and recycled, translating to over $35 billion worth of materials left to rot away.
In this academy we offer advanced training on the skill and business of recycling
Trainees not only learn how to repurpose of recycling, but they also learn how to structure and market their products to earn a decent income from recycling. Additionally, alumni from the programme become part of a community through which they are mentored and linked with opportunities for funding or investment.
