KARA hands over waste management infrastructure to households in Nairobi, Nakuru & Mombasa to promote waste segregation in the neighborhoods

KARA handed over waste management infrastructure to the households participating in the Model Estate Pilot project on Sustainable Waste Management in Nairobi, Nakuru and Mombasa Counties. Among the estates selected for the pilot include: Ngei Phase II Estate in Nairobi City County, Old Town Estate in Mombasa, Kiamunyi and Kivumbini Estates in Nakuru.

The waste receptacles are expected to enhance waste segregation and afford the households an opportunity to actively practice a circular approach to waste management.

Gracing the handover event in Mombasa were the county Chief Sustainability Officer, Mr. Basil Angaga and the Old Town MCA Mr. Abdirahman Hussein. The Nakuru County Government Environment CECM Dr. Nelson Maara graced the handover in Nakuru accompanied by his Chief Officer, Kennedy Mungai.

The project, is supported by The Royal Danish Embassy & the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (DEPA), and aims to develop guidelines for at-source waste segregation that can be implemented by neighbourhoods across the country in accordance with the Sustainable Waste Management Act.
