Ecomak Recyclers was founded in mid-2020 as a leader in recovering and reuse of recyclable waste in Kyaka II refugee settlement, Uganda.

Our objectives are to improve waste management across the refugee settlement, encourage local businesses to a more sustainable lifestyle, and promote a circular economy.

As of to-date we collect and recycle over 30 tons of waste per month and we are now taking a step forward. Our upcoming ultimate goal is to be the leading company in Uganda and Africa at large to recycle & transform the locally mass volume of collected waste into finished products.

Well, we recycle for generations!

Our Work

Advantages of Using Our Plastic Bricks (Manufactured from Waste Plastics)

Durability: They replicate concrete and clay equivalents but outlast them in the application. Our ecobricks have a life expectancy of over 50 years, with minimal degradation.

Cost effective: Our ecobricks are 30% cheaper than the conventional bricks and in terms of the  "life cost", our ecobricks are significantly cost saving due to reduced maintenance and replacement requirements.

Zero breakages: Our ecobricks do not break once used and this implies there are no damages while using our products. You buy 1000 and use 1000.

Termite Resistant: They cannot rot, become dump (allowing algae growth) and termites cannot feed on them.

Easy to work with: Traditional construction-working tools such as hammers and nails can be used. The products can be cut, drilled, and nailed as easily as conventional bricks.
