Sustainable Waste Management – Circular Economy Transition
Transition into the Circular Economy
The Countries Solid Waste Management Crisis – Nairobi is faced with problems of lack of solid waste collection facilities and low efficiencies in operation of existing facilities as well as the design, capacity and location of final disposal sites. The poor management of solid waste has resulted into generation of leachate which pollutes the ground water and soil, the spread of infectious diseases, blockage of sewers and drainage systems, spread of foul smoke from private burning of waste as well.
Plastic waste used in most packaging is the most conspicuous nuisance, littering many parts of the City commercial, industrial and residential neighbourhoods. Furthermore, scavengers and others are exposed to health risks as no separation of hazardous waste fractions is practiced.
As stated above, most of the solid waste generated in the city remains uncollected with a collection efficiency estimated at 25%. The collection that takes place is shared between the city authority and a few private collectors mainly concentrated in the high income areas, leaving the poor peri-urban neighbourhoods largely unattended. Waste transported to the dumpsite for disposal is not properly managed, often applying open burning to reduce the waste volume. Many households, particularly in the peri-urban and extended areas do not have the privilege of any mode of collection, and have resorted to private burning of waste or digging their own pits to bury the waste on site.
The new Waste plants contained within the new Educational centres for Nigeria explaining how the transition into the Circular Economy can take place this coming year in Nigeria. New recycled products will then be used within the Centre for manufacturing of new products – glass – metal- building blocks
Nigeria can move from the current linier model to a Circular Economic model – our plants will assist this transition.
