First state-of the art  Waste sorting and composting facility
in West Africa.

ACARP was established in July 2012 to provide a holistic integrated approach to managing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) within the city of Accra and its environs. The plant, with a processing capacity of 600 metric tonnes per day (TPD), receives, sorts and produces high quality organic compost for agricultural and agronomical activities as well as other recyclable products such as plastics, paper, metal scraps for both local and international market. ACARP believes strongly that recycling is good for the environment, human health and the economy and looks forward to the incorporation of recycling into national environmental policy. The team of experts at ACARP have the zeal to share their technical and scientific knowledge and experience in the field of waste management.
ACARP is equipped with modern teaching and learning facilities as well as ultramodern laboratories for training and research into modern effective processing and recycling technologies.
In the short to medium term, ACARP seeks to expand its existing facility to 1500TPD to comprehensively manage the over 3000 metric tonnes of MSW generated daily in the capital city of Accra. As part of its strategic plan to extensively manage the waste situation in Ghana the company is setting up mobile plants with daily processing capacities of 200TPD per line in all regional capitals. In the long term, it is hoped that integrated facilities to covert waste to energy, medical and electronic waste will be integrated into its operations.


To provide a cheaper and justifiable alternative to other non-compost users

Our products have been tried and tested and proven to be of the best quality and standards.


Goals & Objectives

The overall goal of the facility was not only to produce compost for the end user target markets but also provide a cheaper and justifiable alternative to other non-compost users such as the MMDAs.

The Material Recovery Facility at ACARP was therefore to meets three critical stakeholder needs:
To provide the MMDAs within the catchment areas a viable and cost effective alternative to landfilling.
To help meet the growing demand for organic compost as soil enhancement medium or fertilizers.
To provide sustainable material and energy recovery solutions to the high or increasing levels of recyclables in our MSW.
