The world’s population will reach 9.8 billion by 2050, according to data from the United Nations (UN).

OLDHAM, GREATER MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM,
March 12, 2019 -- Sellers Containers, a subsidiary of the Visionscape Group and the UK’s leading manufacturer of bins, skips and containers, has expanded its unrivalled product range with the addition of the Sellers Trade Waste Bins.
SolarStreetBinTM and IoT Waste Bin enhance the end-to-end waste collection process by giving organisations real-time updates on the status of each waste bin. This capability allows them to immediately respond and service bins that only need servicing, which in turn reduces the time, costs and manpower required to maintain an entire bin fleet.
With a faster response time, governments and municipalities are able to protect the health and safety of the public and ensure the streets and environment are clean and sanitary.

Only 1 out of 5 people has access to electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Out of nearly 1 billion people who do not have electricity worldwide, 50 percent are residing in Sub-Saharan African countries.
Lack of access to reliable electricity has been a widespread challenge in the African continent for decades, negatively affecting quality of life, economic growth and market competitiveness.
Across the world, waste management has become one of the most critical environmental issues that needs to be addressed. From plastic pollution in oceans and on land and over-consumption due to the growth of the middle class across emerging markets to the current patterns across the developed world and rapid increase of waste generation, these factors have spawned an array of environmental issues, where not a single one overrides the other.
One of Visionscape Group’s core actions in 2019 is to amplify its efforts in addressing plastic waste in Europe and in emerging African markets, with an eye towards expanding the reach of its waste management solutions in Asia, the Middle East, and across the globe.
In 2019, Visionscape plans to increase and strengthen partnerships with governments and businesses, and support them in implementing policies on plastic waste management, allowing them to reach their immediate and long-term sustainability goals.
Africa – the second largest continent in the world, covering about one-fifth of the total land surface of Earth – is facing a waste crisis.
Many would argue that the surge of waste is a result of an exponential increase in population density, economic growth, and rapid urbanisation. Others would posit it is the lack of proper information on how waste can be managed from across the value chain
