Heavy fine, jail for failure to sort waste at source

Failing to sort wastes will cost you Sh20,000 starting next month or imprisonment not exceeding six months or both. In a move aimed at reducing littering, illegal dumpsites, resource wastage, and greenhouse gas emissions, NEMA will enforce new stringent waste disposal guidelines set to take effect next month. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/environment-climate/article/2001482054/new-measures-heavy-fine-jail-for-failure-to-sort-waste-at-source
