(Business in Cameroon) - On October 22, 2019, SABC group, leader of Cameroon’s brewery market, and Namé Recycling began a collaboration with the University of Douala in the framework of their plastic waste collection initiative.

The method implemented by the brewing company and Namé Recycling consists of collecting, processing and recycling as much plastic waste as possible, to give those wastes a second life and real economic value.

According to official sources, between 2017 and 2018, 38 million bottles, or 1350 tons of waste, were collected and recycled. For the first eight months of 2019, nearly 1,000 tons of plastic waste was collected and processed.

"These scraps have made it possible to manufacture plastic utensils and other supplies, which are marketed in Cameroon and in IKEA stores abroad (…) The partnership we started with the University of Douala, where we have deposited about ten Namébins (bins for waste collection, ed.note), will continue with all universities in Cameroon, with the objective of offering students a pleasant living environment, which is a source of intellectual development and performance," SABC group says.

The partnership between SABC group and Namé Recycling was initiated to implement the country’s regulation that requires each manufacturer or distributor of non-biodegradable packaging to set up a recovery system for recycling, recovery or disposal.
