KCCA unveils a new waste recycling plant at Wakonko, Industrial area that will take organic solid waste from markets and plastic waste from the general public and turn it into revenue-generating products.
At the Recycling Centre, organic solid waste from the city markets will be reconverted into animal feeds for nonherbivorous animals, and manure for the new city plant nursery, while the plastic waste will be collected for
processing into plastic flakes to manufacture various products.
With this development, plastic in Kampala City will no longer be treated as mere waste. It’s going to be a cash cow to many city residents who can harvest and deliver plastic to the recycling plant.
The project is expected to present numerous opportunities
and create jobs for over 1500 people along the entire chain as well as improve environmental management.
