Introducing drop-off waste recycling

Colas Benin has introduced a system of collection and sorting for both solid and liquid waste. Waste-sorting awareness sessions have been conducted with site personnel. In conjunction with Total, a used oil collection and disposal oraganization was set up. In 2007, 15% of all used oil was recovered, roughly 4,000 liters, but by 2008, 100% was recovered.

As far as solid waste is concerned, containers have been installed, although waste processing and disposal solutions are not yet fully developed throughout the country.
