Residents of Malindi town clean the town during the monthly clean up exercise

Environment and Forestry Principal Secretary Dr Ibrahim Mohamed has called on Kenyan to adopt the circular economy model in terms of dealing with waste.

“The Ministry has finalized public consultations on development of a Sustainable Waste Management (SWM) Bill and Policy”. The PS said.
The policy has adopted a circular economy approach whereby all waste is regarded useful and extraction of maximum value from waste is prioritized.
In a speech read on his behalf today by the Director of Environmental Education and Awareness Dr Ayub Macharia the PS said the Policy and Bill intends to create many jobs for Kenyans in the waste industry through waste recycling and composting.
He urged Counties to domesticate the SWM Policy and Bill in order to ensure a clean and healthy environment as enshrined in the Constitution.
The PS spoke in Malindi town after a monthly clean up exercise spearheaded by Progress Welfare Association of Malindi and the Malindi Municipality. The clean up exercise was attended by Kilifi North MP Hon. Owen Baya, Kilifi CECs in charge of Environment and Tourism among other dignitaries.
