Inadequecies Of Solid Waste Management Among Public, Private And Community Based Organisations In Kasarani Constituency, Nairobi County

ABSTRACT

Most of our activities as human beings generate solid waste. As much as the solid waste that is generated may not be harmful in its current state, the methods through which this waste is handled, stored, collected and disposed can pose risks to the local populace as well as the community. The situation is aggravated by the fact that solid waste has no owner, and therefore the provision of quality solid waste management services is left for those who can afford it. The objectives of this study was to study the amount and composition of waste handled by waste management service providers, their equipment and personnel capacity, how this capacity affects their performance and identify opportunities available to increase their capacity thus render better services. The data was gathered mainly through the use of questionnaires, interviews and observation. The results gotten from the research revealed that the capacity of the various service providers is wanting both in terms of personnel and equipment. There is therefore a need for the government to implement plans and proposals in place, meant to build the capacity of all the key players so as to step up efficiency in waste management. .
