Zanrec is a waste management company that collects and recycles plastic waste from more than 70 hotels in Zanzibar. Its mission is to work towards creating a zero-waste eco-system on the island which will also ideally become self-sufficient from green energy.

The island of Zanzibar generates over 96,000 metric tonnes of waste a year.

Due to a lack of proper waste management, an equivalent of the weight of a Boeing 747 gets dumped on Zanzibar every day, contaminating the environment and causing serious consequences to public health and the economy​.
