Waste Management

The waste disposal in urban centers is turning into a menace due to lack of proper waste management policies by all stakeholders. Our intervention will ensure the creation of trash bin, collection facilities and responsible disposal

All human activities generate waste which requires to be properly managed to protect human health and environment while enhancing aesthetics. This scenario is particularly evident in urban settlements which generate large quantities of solid waste due to high human population. The impacts of poor solid waste management within the urban settlements, can be disastrous. As such there is need for proper and efficient waste management. Kenya Vision 2030 recognizes the need for efficient and sustainable waste management systems to be established as the country develops into a newly industrialized state by 2030.

In an effort to address poor solid waste management, COPICAD CBO has developed a strategy to mitigate this challenge through community involvement in responsible waste handling. This initiative will include and not limited to garbage collection, drainage construction and maintenance, waste bin installation, recycling and community training on better waste management practices.

The significant increase of municipal solid wastes (e.g., food disposals, biomedical wastes, recyclable materials, etc.) is a very important environmental issue around the world. Waste recycling, reduction, and reuse are not only methods to solve environmental problems, but also directions for social innovation for business to create potential social value.

As our country and county continue to become more and more urbanized, the population growth in our urban areas, sets up waste management and disposal challenges.

Our goal is to contribute to the health of the environment and the citizens of Nyandarua through appropriate collection and management of garbage, recyclables, yard materials, household special waste and other selected/designated materials.

Future improvements in waste management will be more dif?cult as most existing programs (e.g., County Govt. waste collection, waste burning, etc.) are performing at an average level. Significant improvements in waste management in the future will require new programs/initiatives.
