Our Purpose

GoReclaim works to promote plastic recycling in Ghana, as well as supporting the financial independence of waste pickers. Our goal is to improve the working conditions and provide fair pay for recycling workers. One way your donation can help, is to provide free of charge transport solutions to workers to bring the collected plastic to the recycling plant.

Our Mission

What drives us

In Ghana, as in many other developing countries, PET recycling is left to the private sector. Hence there is no state authority regulating or overseeing the collection and recycling of plastic waste. As a consequence the vast majority of recycled plastic is collected by independent collectors (waste pickers) working directly with processors. These waste pickers work in inhumane conditions and get little to no credit for their immense contribution to the local economy. 


We work for those people. 

“Working as a PET processor has shown me that the informal workers are being neglected.They have enormous potential, however the low value creation of the resource by the state results in low appreciation of the workers and hinders the realisation of their potential.”
