The facility, which is located in Lagos State, has already begun processing the nation’s e-waste under the direction of Hinckley Recycling.

As Daily Trust reports, the purpose of the facility is to “combat the problem of informal recycling of electronics which has caused untold harm to the health of Nigerians and the environment.”

Situated in Ojota, Lagos State, the facility has already commenced its operations, under the management of Hinckley Recycling.

Hinckley’s Business Development Manager, Belinda Osayamwen, released a statement in which she said that “the firm is committed to engender a standard of excellence by providing high quality service for the disposal of electronic waste and ensuring that the service is always conducted in an environmentally friendly manner.”

She also commented that “the processes involved during the disposal would at all times conform to and comply with all relevant legislations as enforced by the recognised authorities – local and international.”
