Comments / Narrative

We are organizing the Wastepickers in Nigeria through their different clusters or dump sites and we are processing the registration under Trade Union Act in the Ministry of Labour and Employment.

The National Union of Scrap and Waste Workers of Nigeria (NUSWON); an affiliate of The Federation of Informal Workers’ Organizations of Nigeria (FIWON) is a platform that represent those at the base of the recycling industry whose source of livelihood depends on the collection, sorting and recycling of waste. These three activities are always interrelated reflecting the environmental implications of their work. NUSWON engages government at all levels, the private sector, local and international development agencies to promote knowledge driven initiatives to advance the socio-economic rights of scrap and waste workers.
