Chairman's Message

RAA, the Recycling Association of Africa, promotes the much-needed platform for African recycling companies as the voice of African recycling.
As the Founding Chairman of RAA, I am honoured to accept this responsibility, which brings both the opportunity and the obligation to protect and preserve our natural resources for future generations.
Our current recycling system is at a crossroads and urgently requires smart & efficient resources utilisation and creative energy to better serve the African recycling industry.
RAA's role is to lead a collaborative effort to create a transformative vision for our recycling industry that is inclusive, equitable, and reflective of the circular economy.
That is why I am pleased to announce RAA, a critical effort in work to build a circular economy for all by creating awareness programs through conferences, networking, and education, which will in turn build a collaborative connection to the rest of the world.

Recycling Africa

It is estimated that Africa houses roughly 30 percent of the known global mineral reserves, and these desirable commodities have been extracted, and often exploited, for centuries. However, extracting those precious resources from the ground comes at an environmental cost that is increasingly coming under scrutiny and that is where circular thinking can play a huge part.
Africa is projected to be home to almost 2 billion people by 2040. To realize the climate goals, there is a need to significantly increase the recycling capacity. That’s the most effective way to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions, is to recycle the critical metals lying in landfills. Of the 125million tons of solid waste generated every year, 70–80% of this waste is recyclable. However, the continent recycles only 4% of this total waste and lesser plastics.
