A mountain of success!
Pure Earth partner GreenAd’s Bennett Akuffo is shown here standing on a pile of cleanly processed plastic cable casings in Agbogbloshie, Ghana. This is what would have been burnt, releasing polluting toxic fumes, if local recyclers had processed wires from e-waste the usual way. Now this pile of plastic will be ground up and used as filler for cement, while the valuable copper and metals pulled from the e-waste casings have been sold.
