AppCyclers is a social enterprise, founded in 2019 in Tamale, Northern Ghana. It is an innovative waste management company that focuses its activities on providing e-waste education, e-waste collection services, e-waste recycling, and upcycling solutions to promote a safer, greener environment in Ghana and Africa as a whole.
AppCyclers team visited Agbogbolshie to observe and interact with the people that work there.
We had a nice time chatting with a few of our colleagues knowing how they operate and function, and how we can collaboratively work with them from the north.
Research has shown that in Ghana, about 63% of the labour forces that work as scavengers of ewaste at Agbogbolshie are from northern region. The situation of migrating from the northern part of the country to the southern sector to make ends meet is very serious.
