“Togo Propre” Project / “Clean Togo”

This project calls on Youth in Togo to come together and think about new solutions for Waste Management.

An initiative of DJS-TOGO

Overview of the project

Question: According to the regulatory, social, institutional, technical and economic context, but also according to the deposit of waste, what integrated waste management system would be most appropriate in the maritime region?


  1. The integrated waste management system previously put in place has reduced the organic load of the waste deposit and structured the collection and pre-collection of waste while providing a quality amendment.
  2. The composting process used and the waste management system are efficient and transferable to other localities
  3. The waste deposit contains significant quantities of organic and plastic waste that can be recovered thanks to existing revaluation channels.
  4. The actors in waste management and the population is financially, technologically and institutionally ready to develop waste recovery sectors

Specific objectives:

  1. Schematizing the waste collection system
  2. Estimating the efficiency of the composting process used (technical performance) and the integrated management system (the effect on the public and individual safety of workers)
  3. Estimating the relevant criteria to be met to transfer the composting process and integrated waste management system to another location; criteria for the implementation of a trial in Lomé and its surroundings
  4. Characterizing the Lomé waste deposit
  5. Estimating the capacity to organise and pay the population and actors to develop waste recycling channels
  6. Identifying and describing the financial, technical and human needs needed to set up a value chain
  7. Raising awareness to young people and the population on the problem of waste management
  8. Networking all schools in the area and effectively fight against waste

Nurturing an environmental education for young people and a change of the population's behavior towards waste management
