Kenyan cities, like many others in developing countries, do not have sound and sustainable waste management systems in place, leading to open disposal without processing or treatment. The methane produced from open dumpsites is a major source of greenhouse gases leading to mass biodegradation from the pollution of soil, air and water resources around the area. One such major dumpsite is in Oloolua in Ngong Town.
The proposed project, KISWAM, will close the current open dumpsite and provide a sustainable solution to the current improper solid waste management leading to resources’ recovery (energy, compost) and recycling.
