KCCA RENEWS CONTRACTS FOR WASTE COLLECTION COMPANIES
Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has extended contracts of the 3 solid waste concessionaires for 12 months effective June 2019 to June 2020. The initial contracts lasted four years ending June 2019.
Kampala is subdivided into 7 Solid Waste Management service zones managed by 3 concessionaires (Nabugabo Updeal Join Venture, Homeklin Uganda Limited and Kampala Solid Waste Management Consortium).
The Kampala City Council Solid Waste Management Ordinance of 2000, mandates KCCA and its agents to ensure that solid waste in Kampala is collected and conveyed to treatment installations to satisfy both public health and environmental conservation requirements.
The Ordinance also mandates KCCA to contract services of private parties (as delegated agents) to invest and undertake business operations along the waste management chain.
The primary sources of municipal solid waste (MSW) generation are private households, transient population, market places, commerce, industry, public administration, kindergartens & schools and hospitals among others.
KCCA urges the public on the following;
1. As responsible citizens we need to take responsibility for the garbage we generate and pay for its collection.
2. The community is encouraged to segregate their waste at source and mobilize communities to responsibly manage their waste.
3. The public should allow concessionaires to execute their contracts.
Anybody found littering the city or disrupting collection of solid waste by KCCA or its agents will be culpable.
