Rwanda’s plastic projects

Rwanda plans to cut its garbage production in half by 2050. The government’s numerous steps to achieve an ecological transition provide a chance for businesses to invest in sustainable green trends that are becoming increasingly popular.

In June 2021, the Rwanda Environmental Management Authority (Rema) and the Private Sector Federation (PSF) funded $3 million in Mageragere, Nyarugenge District, to develop a factory to recycle plastic garbage into paving stones. By 2022, the facility will be handling PET bottles, straws, spoons, knives, bags, and plastic construction materials.

Rwanda is also a continental partner in the Circular Plastics Project, which recycles plastic trash from low- and middle-income nations including Kenya, Rwanda, and Nigeria into agricultural resources. British researchers are constructing sand dredging adapters, non-electric milk coolers, and machete peelers, among other things, using this gathered plastic trash and 3D (three-dimensional) printed into agricultural implements.

In addition, Rwandan officials recently initiated a scheme to establish an e-waste collecting site in each district of the country. The project is being carried out in collaboration with Enviroserve Rwanda Green Park, a subsidiary of Enviroserve, a Dubai, United Arab Emirates-based company.
