Informal e-waste recycling practices at Agbogbloshie Market in Accra, Ghana, were widely recognized as unsafe and inefficient. In response, the city of Accra convened multiple national and international partners in an effort to improve recycling practices at the market. One outcome of these efforts is an e-waste recycling pilot facility set up by Blacksmith Institute and GreenAd Ghana. Workers learn how to disassemble items safely and cleanly so valuable parts can be sold at higher value.
