Environmental conservation lobby groups want governments to invest in awareness creation campaigns on household solid waste management.

Mr Elphas Masanga from Slow Food Kenya regretted that households were dumping wastes on drainage systems that drain in Lake Nakuru.

“Climate change is brought about by unchecked human activities. We must handle our waste properly,” he stated.

He was speaking when he led conservation groups in a cleanup exercise at Flamingo Estate in Nakuru Town East sub-County.

He said Nyumba Kumi heads should ensure waste is properly disposed within their local clusters.

Mr Masanga also used the opportunity to advocate for the recycling of solid waste into compost manure that can then be used to grow food.

“Not all solid waste is bad, some can be recycled for farming activities and at the same time conserve the environment,” he stated.

Ms Mary Mbogo from ‘Stand out Shout out’ challenged the youth to champion for environmental matters as it was a form of employment.

Nakuru County Environment Officer Samuel Kimani warned members of the public from disposing of solid waste in undesignated points.

“Every person has a right to a clean environment. We all have a responsibility to better our environment,” he stated.

Lake Nakuru National Park Senior Warden, Collins Ochieng’ said poor waste disposal was hazardous to the aquatic life in Lake Nakuru.
