VNG International – Waste reduction in Lebanon
A refugee camp in Ghazze, Lebanon, is right next to a huge waste heap where people dumped everything from kitchen waste to animal carcasses. This mountain of waste then turned out to be the only place for the refugee children to play. To minimise the health risks and improve the environmental situation, VNG International is working with the United Nations Development Programme to cover this mountain of waste. And to set up a waste cycle. From collecting waste to selling separated waste to a contractor who will recycle it. This way municipalities can even make money from waste.
