National and county governments have been challenged to invest in modern waste recycling to generate organic fertilizers that can be used to plant trees or rehabilitate coffee and Tea plantation as well as correction of semi-arid areas.
Speaking at Kenya Industrial Training Institute (KITI) Simon Njoroge Mwaura, a scientist and Director of Hyaquip Kenya Ltd said that a minimum machine can run 8 tonnes per hour and can help in getting rid of poor waste management problem in counties while making economic transformation in creating jobs for unemployed youths.
Njenga said that they will be asking the government to extend the funds charged on plastic manufactures to enable them set up these plants across the 478 counties as a sure way of dealing with waste.
“The government has been saying that there is no solution to municipal waste but we want to show them that there is a possibility to provide a solution to it”, he said.
He said governments can enter into Public Private Partnerships (PPP) to help in pulling efforts towards commercialization of waste management that can help counties to generate revenue while keeping the environment clean.
