On 12th February 2018, Hinckley Recycling reported that it has begun operations at its government approved e-waste recycling facility in Ojota, Lagos.
The facility aims to combat the problem of informal recycling of electronics that has caused harm to the health of Nigerians and the environment.
Hinckley’s Business Development Manager, Belinda Osayamwen, stated that all e-waste processed by the company is issued with a certificate of destruction recognised by an agency of the Ministry of Environment – National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA) and the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), as well as ensuring that businesses are legally compliant with the Harmful Waste (Special Criminal Provisions) Act Cap HI, 2004 & the National Environmental (Electrical/Electronic Sector) Regulations S.I No 23 of 2011.
In March 2018, Hinckley told AcuComm that it has two facilities online and a third due to open later in the year. Collectively, the facilities are able to process 20,000 tonnes per annum.
