Waste management

Waste management is a growing issue at Kpong Airfield, especially with the growing number of young ladies based at the site. Whether it is catering related or simply from the normal cycle of healthy young people, appropriate waste management is essential.

Until now we used a simple burning pile. However, winds and stray dogs were beginning to add to the work load by distribution of items best left alone!

Ever conscious that our challenges are no different to the rural communities, we designed a simple furnace that could be easily constructed in most communities.

It is now on trial at the airfield and if successful will be offered as a set of plans. .. possibly with the steel components already formed as a kit. .. to provide an improved waste management solution for other small communities.
