About — Waste Collection System Analysis (Ouagadougou)
Winter 2020 - D-Lab I
The waste management system for Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, is currently ineffective, since households have to pay for waste collection services, which many cannot afford. This leads to illegal waste dumping, which leads to negative environmental, health, hygiene, and economic problems.
The goal of this project is to analyze the startup and maintenance costs of the proposed waste management system, as well as potential profits of products created from the waste. This is to propose a refined business model that can be taken t the embassy to file for a grant that will cover startup costs.
