Nakuru County, Green Belt Movement start anti-open waste burning drive

November 17, 2017

Waste is a necessary outcome of any production and consumption process however, the lack of enforcement of relevant environmental law, among other key factors, has led to a chaotic situation in which almost anything goes as far as the handling of waste is concerned.

In line with this, the Green Belt Movement has partnered with the United Nations Development Programme - UNDP , the Ministry of Environment & Natural Resources and Nakuru County Government in a sensitization campaign on the health hazards of open burning of solid waste.

The campaign also seeks to educate the public on alternatives in support of the newly implemented plastic ban.
