The integrated waste management and recycling centre at Kattameya is one of the most innovative and sustainable environmental development projects in Egypt. It was originally conceived as a place for the Torah Zabbaleen to sort garbage and raise pigs away from their living space, as well as a compost production site. Since opening in 1999, Kattameya has grown to include a number of recycling initiatives and production units that are not only environmentally sound, but that have economic and social benefits as well.

Today, Kattameya employs more than 100 people who are working hard to help transfer their environmentally-safe waste management practices to the rest of Egypt and beyond.
