Coumba Diakite is the founder of the company BY’RECYCL, which aims to put an end to the waste thrown in the streets of Mali. The company produces furniture and decorative objects made from used tires. In the long term the company wants to become a waste management industry and make West Africa an ecological example worldwide. In the city of Bamako, every day nearly 30,000 cubic metres of household waste is thrown away and less than 1/5 is recycled. To contribute to the reduction of pollution caused by this waste thrown through incineration Diakite has created the company BY’RECYCL. The company recycles used tyres into furniture, decorative objects and other products.
