In Sierra Leone, Masada incorporates Waste Management Staff

Masada Resource Group, the final smart clean solution in Sierra Leone, has incorporated staff of the existing Freetown Waste Management Company.

This was made known by Ms. Ami Dumbuya, the National Project Manager of Masada Energy International – SL, LLC during the official launched of their December 2012 cleaning exercise  at the Freetown City Council on Thursday 6th December 2012.

She pointed out that they want to contribute to the cleaning of the city as the festive season approaches, adding that the project will also absorb the current staff of the Freetown Waste Management Company to clean the entire country in not too distant future. Ms Dumbuya admonished Sierra Leoneans to take up the responsibility of cleaning their environment.

She reaffirms Masada commitment to the Waste Management staff when Masada made their first payments of their salaries.

Currently Masada is poised to provide a permanent solution to waste management in Sierra Leone. The group has employed the services of about one hundred and fifty youths to embark on the cleaning of the whole city in December.

The Waste Management staff expressed appreciation to Masada as they are in full preparedness to join the resource group and they are ready to make the Group achieve its goal.

Masada Energy International – SL, LLC, is a subsidiary of the United States–based Masada Resource Group, LLC, a competitive and responsible provider of proven and environmentally friendly technology solutions. Masada has developed a pipeline of international waste-to-energy projects to deploy these waste technology solutions on a commercial scale.

Masada Resource Group offers comprehensive, integrated and environmentally-sound waste disposal methods to maximize recycling, materials reuse and value-added process in Sierra Leone. It was in September 2012 the Government of Sierra Leone, through the Ministry of Local Government signed an agreement with Masada Energy International – Sierra Leone to collect, manage, and convert the country’s municipal solid and liquid waste into renewable fuels. Masada will design, finance, implement and operate a comprehensive waste collection system that has already commenced in Freetown.

The investment of the company in Sierra Leone will assume no financial risk from the government. The energy production facilities will create about two thousand new jobs and vendor opportunities. Sierra Leone citizens will be given preferred status for these jobs and vendor opportunities; and the company’s energy production facilities are environmentally safe as they do not contaminate the air, ground or water.

The $300m project lined up by the entity will involve the construction of an ultra modern processing plant and collection of about 400tons of solid and liquid waste per anum to be converted into ethanol. The first step of the project is to capacitate the Freetown waste management so that very soon the project would have collected enough waste to kick start operations.
