Runs On Teamwork

In Lagos, Nigeria a start up company called Wecyclers drives low cost cargo tricycles around the neighborhoods collecting bottles and cans on a schedule.

Right now they are not operating at a profit, but owner Bilikiss Adebiyi-Abiola is optimistic about making money in the future, when the company grows and adds value to the products that they sell.

Meanwhile, they are cleaning up their town, and creating a new manufacturing resource all out of donated "trash".
