The renowned Cameroonian football legend, Roger Milla through his association named “Coeur d’Afrique” has since 2015 been actively involved in the recycling of plastic waste that pollutes the environment of Yaounde, Cameroon into ecological pavings.
The pavings have been alleged to be more resistant than the cement-made pavings. For the past two years, the association has not only been able to recycle more than 51 tons of plastic but has also been able to produce about 1,300 cubic meters of pavings. In addition, this initiative has generated about 20 direct employment and more than 300 indirect jobs.
Coeur d’Afrique will be extending its services to Douala, the economic capital of Cameroon as plans are underway to open a second recycling unit in Douala.
