Partnerships have been very key in getting stakeholder buy-in as well as ownership on the project. The proposition in the partnerships aimed to decentralize the ownership of the eco-points, spur collections rates and develop a seamless sustainable plastic waste value chain. 


During the last 12 months, 3R established various partnerships with different stakeholders. One of the partnerships was with an NGO, ParCo, whereby they established two eco-points, to receive and buy plastic waste from the local community waste pickers.

Continuous stakeholder engagement was cited as an important platform in ironing out issues among partners involved in the implementation of the project



Lessons learned

  • Planning collaboratively is imperative in harnessing synergies as well as allocating responsibility going forward.
  • Co-creation exercises informed the gaps and opportunities to strengthen aspects of the waste value chain as well as providing the assistance that each stakeholder needed.
  • A partnership is only but a means. Continuous communication is vital to keep partnerships strong and robust to deliver their objectives.
