    A good start but they need to encourage recycling and upcycling to avoid landfills from filling the whole of Dandora area

          Trees play a major role in cleaning the environment.However Dandora residents should be more cautious on how to dispose their waste with the help of the county government.

            Unnecessary dumping should also be avoided as a trigger to sewage and recycling encouraged

              @johnte_ndeto the county government should come up with strategies to control waste management in the area

              The government should tackle things like ending the use of plastics and also educate the community about recycling Help projects that deal with recycling that should ease the Dandora sewage

                @zelda_ninga_442 yrs creating awareness in the community will go a long way in instilling personal responsibility in conservation which will boost the efforts of climate action

                Planting trees around the Dandora sewage plant is a great idea. Trees have numerous benefits, including improving air quality, reducing noise pollution, and providing shade. They can also help to absorb and filter pollutants from the sewage plant, making the surrounding environment healthier and more pleasant for the community.

                        Planting trees around the Dandora sewage plant is positive, focusing on improving drainage systems citywide is essential to tackle the root problems of clogging and water/flood management.

                        As good as this is, it does not solve the underlying problem of drainage systems being clogged or unavailable in parts of the city. Also the water/ flood drainage systems in the city are substandard
