Comments / Narrative

The Association was formed as a body to represent the Scraps and Waste dealers in Nigeria and engage with federal, state and local government agencies. Also to help factories /companies source some of their raw materials within the country. One future plan is to build and own a recycling plant where the waste pickers can sell their metal waste.
