The United Nation Environment Assembly (UNEA) meets for the 2nd time in Nairobi from 23 to 27 May 2016 next week and Takataka Solutions has been invited to showcase the waste management services we provide, and how these contribute to a healthy and clean Nairobi.
UNEA is described by the United Nations as “the parliament of the environment” and convenes representatives from all nations to set UNEP’s agenda with regard to the environment. This year’s theme of discussion is “Delivering on the Environmental Dimension of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the policy review session entitled Healthy Environment, Healthy People.” The assembly will be a mix of panels, discussion fora, events and a sustainable expo which Takataka Solutions will be a part of.
In particular, two of the items on the agenda are on waste: food waste and solid waste. Takataka Solutions staff members will be on hand to explain to the public, and to delegates present how we deal with these two kinds of waste to ensure a clean and healthy environment for our clients. Unlike most waste companies in Kenya, we recycle all recyclables, and we compost all organic waste collected and sell this to farmers.
