Pioneering new frontiers in waste management, the Jospon Group of Companies has earned high praise from Nigeria’s leading waste managers for its transformative approach to turning trash into treasure.

The Association of Waste Managers of Nigeria has lauded the innovative waste management strategies of the Jospon Group of Companies Limited. This commendation was made by Olugbenga Adebola, the President of the Association, during a familiarization visit for the Lagos-Ghana waste management project.

The visit included a meeting with the company’s leadership and a tour of Jospon Group’s facilities. Key sites visited were the Abokobi Zoomlion Transfer Station, which handles around 200 tons of waste daily from surrounding communities, and the Accra Compost and Recycling Plant (ACARP), which recycles waste into compost and other materials for household and industrial use.
ACARP’s compost is sold to both farmers and the government as part of the “Planting for Food and Jobs” initiative.
The tour concluded at the JA Plant Pool, responsible for supplying vehicles to the Jospon Group.

In an interview, Mr Adebola expressed admiration for the Jospon Group’s approach to adding value to waste, noting its potential to combat climate change. He mentioned that while Lagos has its waste management project, they are open to collaboration for further expansion.
“Wonderful private sector investment and with a facility like this, you can be rest assured that it will reduce the effect of climate change, and improve effective waste management because waste is not a waste until you waste it. What is happening here is not wasting the waste but extracting the valuables from the waste and then treating it so it’s impressive”, Mr Adebola remarked.

Meanwhile, Malik Ganyo, Plant Manager at ACARP, noted positive feedback from the Nigerian delegation and hinted at a potential collaboration between the Jospon Group and Lagos to extend these projects in Nigeria.

“The feedback has been good so far, they are very impressed with the amount of work that has gone on. The environment, although we are managing waste, is very clean and we all can attest to the environmental consciousness of this facility and we look forward to similar if not better in Lagos”, he said.
The association will continue its tour of Jospon Group’s facilities in Accra before heading to Kumasi on Saturday.
