Daniel Paffenholz finds fortune in Nairobi garbage.

Daniel Paffenholz, an environmentalist, founded TakaTaka Solutions in 2011 to address Nairobi's waste management issues. Unlike traditional methods, his company sorts, recycles, and composts waste, achieving a remarkable 90% recovery rate compared to the industry average of 10%. Despite challenges like cheap dumping and inadequate facilities, TakaTaka aims to process 1,200 tonnes of waste daily in the next five years. Daniel advises aspiring entrepreneurs in waste management to be patient and invest in the right equipment. He calls for collective responsibility in promoting recyclable designs and implementing sustainable waste management practices.
