We will systematically review all of our operations in Mali, to measure their potential impacts; we will also continuously evaluate our environmental programs in order to establish the preferred management practices, and ensure that the company adheres to the principles of continuous improvement and prevention of pollution.
We offer a training program for our employees to ensure they have all of the necessary skills and knowledge to respect and implement the environmental protection standards that we all seek.
The cruel lack of infrastructure in Mali is not tolerable; even in Bamako, about half of the garbage is not collected or processed. There are authorized transit depots in some major cities but the majority of pre- collected trash by the Economic Interest Groups (GIE) or independent collectors end up in chaotic depots, in open gutters or water streams.
In rural areas, they are amassed in wasteland before being spread on the fields for the upcoming rainy season. Sikasso is the only Region with a functional Solid Waste Landfill (ETC) in Mali.
The establishment of a Solid Waste Landfill for Bamako is in the works and will be located in Noumoubougou. The valorization of organic waste and waste recycling activities are poorly developed in Mali.
Macrowaste takes this problem very seriously and wants to provide all areas of Bamako with a very efficient and industrialized system.
Always in search of new technologies to meet the challenge of the moment, Macrowaste works very closely with industry leaders with more than 50 years of experience in the field of solid waste treatment in the United States.
Macrowaste works closely with several companies in the following areas:
- landfill management.
- road maintenance
- Landfill Gas
- Trash collection and transfer
- Planning & Management
- Recycling & Composition
- Communication, Education & Marketing
