The ReCYCLE Scheme is a weekly waste collection service run by young people living on the street using bicycles and trailers to collect waste from subscribing customers. Participants receive points for conducting collections from more than 40 subscribing customers including businesses and private household, and these points translate to funds towards schools fees and equipment. Points are also received for bike maintenance. The young people also recieve wider support including mentoring and referrals with the aim of getting them back to school and re-housed. It is the first recycling collection scheme in Lesotho.
After only 6 weeks of training, the our Siyakhona Media Studio participants produced this wonderful profile of one of our ReCyclers, Tselisang
