Gaborone Transfer and Recycling Station
At the moment, the city of Västerås is involved in a Municipal Partnership with Gaborone City Council with the project Gaborone Transfer and Recycling Station, which started at the end of February this year.
The project will conduct a feasibility study on a reloading/recycling facility in Gaborone. The overall objective of the project is that waste management in Gaborone becomes more efficient and socially, environmentally and economically sustainable.
Through sound resource management, a recycling and transfer station will contribute to help combat climate change and decrease the negative impact on the environment, while, creating jobs and strengthening the local authority through collaboration between public and private sectors.
The feasibility study will contain information about a transfer station with sorting and recycling facilities, including design, location and environmental impact assessment and business and ownership models.
The Management Committee of the partnership has decided to develop and broaden the partnership to include a pilot project and school exchanges to increase awareness of waste management in general and waste separation and recycling in particular.
The partnership runs from February 2013 to February 2016.
