What we do
FPA Member – Nigeria, Lagos
WeCyclers is a social enterprise led by a strong entrepreneurial vision. Based in Lagos (Nigeria), the company offers fair and convenient waste collection services to households and enterprises.
Over the years, WeCyclers has gained considerable trust among communities based in impoverished, densely-populated areas in Lagos, thanks to an innovative model. The company encourages households to sort their own waste through an incentive-based system: collecting waste is worth points that can be converted in gifts or money. By means of a wide network of informal waste workers and an articulated internal structure, supported by a sophisticated ERP tool, WeCyclers is rapidly expanding in volumes and scale.
This approach is helping local people to integrate their revenues and fight poverty, as well as having a positive and measurable impact on environment and public health, both key factors for the improvement of living conditions.
