Services offered by KCCA.
The Authority is mandated with provision of services in the city that enable residents and businesses operating in the city function in an environment that supports development.
Solid waste collection and garbage management is one of the key services provided by the council.
KCCA has contracted private companies to manage solid waste collection so as to improve the cleanliness of the city. It is estimated that the per capita generation of garbage is one kilogram per day. With a population of about 1.5 million, this works out to about 1500 tons. The council can only manage to dispose of 40% - 50% of this. About 80% of this garbage is organic matter which makes it very bulky to handle.
