A Namibian recycling venture, NamiGreen, recycled 10.2 tons of electronic waste in 2019, double the amount recorded in 2018, the company said on Wednesday.

“In 2020, NamiGreen will continue its growth strategy and expects to partner with more cities, companies as well as citizens in order to combat the growing amounts of electronic waste,” Hansen said.
