Waste litters nearly every street in Haiti and the government struggles to implement an effective solution. Though in several areas mayors make an effort to create designated piles for easy pickup, the waste rarely gets picked up. If the piles are picked up, it generally goes to Truitier or another extremely hazardous and largely unregulated dumpsite. As the population grows, the waste problem accelerates creating more sanitation and environmental hazards.
Our solution is custom tailored for Haiti's social and environmental landscape. It adds value to waste (thus incentivizing pickup), produces affordable biofertilizer for Haitian farmers, produces biogas for electricity, reduces health and environmental waste hazards and has an overall immensely positive environmental and health impacts for Haiti.
Lakay Vèt is working to lead the waste management sector in Haiti into a responsible and sustainable future. We are using custom innovative technology to transform waste into materials that can fuel the manufacturing and artisanal economic sectors as well as producing biofertilizer and biogas byproducts.
