Boomba.mobi is a waste management business that focuses on manufacturing organic compost using food waste which they sell to local scaling farmers and household owners in the Johannesburg north region. Food waste continues to be one of the major issues in South African townships where waste is concerned. Because there are no plans in place in the township to help address the issue of food waste, community members are left with no choice but to mix food waste with other waste matters. This results in informal waste collectors finding it hard to collect other waste matters. As a result, community members have to deal with rodents and other forms of vermin once the waste has been dumped and neglected.
