Poor waste management in Sierra Leone causes major health risks, and materials that could be re-used/recycled and re-sold are wasted.

This 5 minute film shows various ways to convert waste metal and rubber into products that can be locally produced such as sieves, graters, domestic stoves, cooking pots, slippers, buckets, motorbike parts, and much more. The film is based on ‘waste to wealth’ interventions of two WASH Facility funded projects in Sierra Leone.

This film is likely to be of interest in those working on solid waste in Sierra Leone, also organisations interested in setting up income generating projects in urban contexts. It may be of interest to the general public of Sierra Leone, to encourage people to replicate these business ideas themselves.

This film is part of a 3-part series – the other two covering what can be done with organic waste, and waste plastic.
