Kumasi Waste Management Limited

Kumasi Waste Management Limited was established in 2000 to complement Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly's (KMA) efforts to improve sanitation in the region. It was the first privately owned Ghanaian company to start Waste management operations in the Metropolis. Since its inception, the company has been actively engaged in solid waste collection and evacuation. This project started in the Kumasi Metropolis and later extended to other selected zones and communities.

As a result of JSO’s technical expertise and capability, the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly then contracted JSO to operate and manage the biggest and only engineered landfill and sewerage treatment plant in the country, constructed by the World Bank.  For this contract JSO was a pioneer in the private sector participation programme.

Main activities are:

  • Domestic house-to-house collection         
  • Industrial and institutional collections
  • Medical and similar hazardous waste
