The two-year UK Aid-funded WasteAid initiative in Kenya is helping an entire community move towards zero waste. This update has been provided by our project managers, Duncan Oloo and Moses Noah.
1 Recyclables (blue bin): includes all recyclable materials e.g. metal cans, glass bottles and jars, milk packets and many more dry materials.
2 Biodegradables (green bin): includes kitchen refuse and vegetable waste.
3 Disposable waste (red bin): includes waste that cannot be addressed at any given point e.g. diapers and pampers.
We target local markets through partnerships with stakeholders, networking and participating in exhibitions to showcase our products.
By supplying biogas for cooking fuel, we will reduce demand for charcoal and firewood, helping reduce deforestation and the release of harmful emissions to the environment.
The fertiliser will be sold to local farmers.
