Habona offers waste collection services and adds value to collected waste to produce affordable and environmentally friendly fuels in form of biomass briquettes and bio-gas. Throughout the waste collection process, Habona uses suitable organic materials to make organic fertilizers that are sold to farmers and farming cooperatives. By signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Nyagabe District, Habona has become the sole collector of waste in the region. Meaning they have a monopoly in the district in waste-management and energy conservation.
