Abstract:

One of the most obvious impacts of rapid urbanization and economic development can be witnessed in the form of uncollected municipal solid waste. The study reports on solid waste management in selected towns in Kenya. It reviews the collection, handling, policy support, institutional development, private sector involment, user participation, technical development and waste management. The study revealed that the urban councils were grappling with challenges of preventing environmental degradation due to non-systematic solid waste management and the impetus in pollution control was rather slow and seems to be mostly crisis driven.
