Nakuru County Engages Garage Owners in Waste Management Collaboration

Kennedy Mungai, Chief Officer for Environment in Nakuru County, recently convened a meeting with garage owners and operators in Nakuru Town to discuss and improve waste management practices within their establishments. The primary focus was on ensuring the proper separation of solid and liquid waste.

The collaborative effort involving garage owners and local authorities underscores Nakuru County’s commitment to sustainable waste management practices for a cleaner and healthier environment. The meeting was attended by various stakeholders, including the Kiamaina Ward MCA Paul Waweru, Director for Environment Grace Karanja, Sub-county Administrator Clare Obora, Sub-county Environment Officer Ibrahim Nginyo, and Ward Administrators Sarah Kangara and Edwin Keter from London.
