Kampala, Uganda- To control the collection and management of solid waste, Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has acquired 80 trucks which will be distributed amongst various districts of the city.
The Executive Director of the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Dorothy Kisaka, has also promised to fund the acquisition of new sanitational equipment for the Ugandan capital with money which will be released in July 2023.

This approach is aimed at improving the collection and management of solid waste in Kampala, which has become a critical issue in recent times, due to incompetent waste management system.

To reduce pollution, Uganda’s most populous city is also focusing on recycling. The Kampala City Council is supporting several initiatives in this direction, including the Plastic Recycling Industries (PRI) initiative implemented by Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA) to convert plastic waste into plastic granules. The pellets are used as raw materials in the manufacture of equipment such as chairs, containers, and crates for storing beer and milk bottles.
