NECC held field investigations in Nyeri County with focus on Gikeu dumpsite. This was in a bid to ensure the people in those areas enjoy a clean and healthy environment.Along with the population growth and rapid urbanization, there has been a rise in the amount of waste being generated daily in Kenya and is predicted to double by 2030, this waste is eventually thrown into municipal disposal sites and due to poor and ineffective management, the dumpsites turn to causes of environmental and health hazards to people living in the vicinity of such dumps. According to NECC field investigations carried out across the country, solid waste management has been discovered as one of the foremost challenging problem in the country and it requires a serious attention by all stakeholders and in particular the County Governments. “Solid waste disposal has been a serious nuisance across the counties against the constitutional right on clean and healthy environment” said Dr. John ChumoIn addition, Dr. John Chumo said inappropriate management of waste poses a threat to Climate Change and eventually in the triumph of sustainable development and therefore there is need for the Country to come up with a sustainable waste management technologies and plans to cub the raising challenge. The Environmental Management and Coordination Act of 1999 and Environmental Management and Coordination (Waste Management) Regulations of 2006 outline rules for the management of waste in general and for the management of solid waste, industrial waste, hazardous waste, pesticides and toxic substances, biomedical waste and radioactive substances in particular in order to ensure a clean and healthy environment for all, keeping in line with the Article 42, of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.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 this regard the Vision 2030 identified Solid waste management for five cities and towns namely; Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Nakuru and Thika as one of the flagship projects. #DontTrashyourEarthRecycleYourTrash.#BeCleanBeGreenBeRecyclingMachine.
