Activities of Recovery and Valorisation of Non-Organic Degradable Waste in the City of Porto-Novo in Benin: Strength and Weaknesses
Brice Saturnin DANSOU, Leocadie ODOULAMI
In the city of Porto-Novo, recovery and recovery channels have multiplied greatly favoring a broad integration of urban populations in the waste business. This study has analyzed the strengths and weaknesses of the recovery and recovery of non-biodegradable waste in the city of Porto-Novo. Socio-economic data are collected from twenty (20) waste pickers (given the nomadic nature of the waste pickers), ten resellers and five users of the completely selected recycling products in Porto-Novo. They are supplemented by information from interviews with 44 resource persons, observations and documentation. The descriptive statistics, the documentary analysis and the triangulation technique made it possible to analyze the results obtained. In Porto-Novo, the recovery sector is controlled at 87 % by West African nationals against only 13 % of Beninese. This activity enabled 82 % of respondents to overcome the surrounding unemployment and generate a monthly salary of about 37, 500 CFA francs / month. Metal waste, plastic waste and pneumatic waste are the most recovered and recovered. Given the scale of this activity, it is important that accompanying measures are taken.
