PS, Environment and Forestry, Mr. Charles Sunkuli, addressing members of the press on the status of plastic waste in the Country.

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry, through its enforcement agency, the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA), has been working on diverse programs and policies aimed at putting into practice an orderly solid waste management plan in the Country. Principal Secretary in the Ministry, Mr. Charles Sunkuli, has said.

Addressing a media conference on the status of plastic carrier bags and position of plastic bottles in Kenya in his NHIF office, Mr. Sunkuli noted that, plastic bottles are categorized as solid waste and as per the 2010 Constitution, waste management is a devolved function, that must be handled by County Governments, with policy guidance and leadership of the National Government through this Ministry.

The Principal Secretary observed that, the Ministry had entered into a partnership agreement with plastic bottles industry players and the Kenya Association of Manufactures, on a plastic bottles take back scheme, as set by PETCO recycling company of South Africa, to collect and sell disused plastic bottles for recycling, hence providing Kenyans with a cleaner environment.
