Want to get our hands dirty for a good cause? Project Clean and Recycle is a community clean-up initiative aimed at mobilizing five thousand (5000) volunteers to clean-up major dirty streets in Ajegunle and also spread the awareness of waste sorting and recycling as an effective waste management practice.The NGO focuses on Community Clean-up Projects and Climate Change. Some of their projects are supported by the Clean-Up the World Campaign in Australia and Let’s Do It World Clean-up Foundation in Estonia.
It is required that during this exercise volunteers will clean the gutters, drainage, streets and also embrace recycling by sorting the waste that will be generated from trash and keeping recyclable materials in separate containers/bags to be disposed of approximately at the LAWMA Recycling bank that will be provided by LAWMA.
