To commemorate Earth day, Swiss Pharma Nigeria partnered with RecyclePoints to facilitate a Community Cleanup & Recycling Program in Dopemu, Agege, Lagos, Nigeria.
The Recycling program was spearheaded by the MD of Swiss Pharma Nigeria, Mr Frederic Lieutaud and supported by Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) represented by Mrs. Ruqayah Ogunmuyiwa and the Baale of Dopemu, High Chief S.A.S Afogunlowo.
Over 700kilograms of Recyclables were recovered for recycling at the exercise which also involved the empowerment of community environmental champions with 10 DORI Bins procured by SWIPHA to sustain recyclables recovery in the Dopemu Community.
RecyclePoints applauded SWIPHA for us commitment to Host Community Engagement to improve livelihood and promote environmental sustainability.
RecyclePoints is Nigeria’s foremost waste recycling and social benefit venture, through the use of social incentives to motivate people to recycle their waste.
