SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT

In built-up areas, the most pressing environmental concern is the increasing volume of solid waste being generated by the growing number of household and commercial establishments. The per capita waste generation is rising as more Irosinians adopt a consumerist lifestyle and prefer disposable or single-use products and non-biodegradable packaging materials. A waste characterization study in 2002 showed that about 86% by weight of solid waste from households is organic materials, approximately 10% is recyclable and only 4% is residual waste. The study showed that 96% of solid waste from households is recoverable resource and only a small fraction is fit for final disposal.
