    Waste management in Kenya’s capital Nairobi is still a major problem with 1,760 tons of waste being produced daily. This quantity can generate Sh 13 billion ($130 million) annually if properly recycled according to a report released last year by the International Livestock Research Institute. Lack of an effective waste disposal mechanism and a rapidly growing population have worsened the situation resulting in huge piles of garbage at residential and business premises.

(16 Sep 2017) LEADIN: On one of Africa's largest dumps, residents are making a living by recycling hair found among the mountains of rubbish. They have tapped into the multi-billion-dollar global hair care industry by selling the collected hair to beauty salons for a small profit. STORYLINE: Nairobi's Dandora Municipal Dumpsite stretches as far as the eye can see. It was declared full in 2001 but has remained active, with 850 to 1,500 tons of waste arriving every day. Kenya last month implemented a ban on plastic bags, a major contributor to the towering piles of trash. Environmentalists have campaigned for years to have the dump shut down, calling it an eyesore and a hazard. But for thousands of Kenyans, the dump is their only lifeline. 31-year-old Winnie Wanjira has spent her whole life at the dumpsite, where her family owns a restaurant and several other small businesses. She has discovered that one person's rubbish, is another person's treasure. An estimated 6-thousand people make their living by scavenging waste in Dandora, sifting through garbage for items they can sell on – such as plastic bottles, paper and electronics. Wanjira has figured out a way to tap into one of Africa's rapidly growing hair care industry. She has a small business buying hair collected by boys in the dumpsite and selling it on to salons for a small profit. "I get this hair from these boys, they usually wait for the garbage truck from the central business district which comes with garbage. There is always a separate bag with hair. So we have five different types of hair," Wanjira says. "So you can get lucky and find unused human hair. Maybe someone bought it and wasn't satisfied with it, maybe the colour, then they threw it away. So maybe that one, the boys can sell it to me at 200 Kenyan shillings (approximately 2 US dollars) while I can sell them to a salon at 500 Kenyan shillings (4.85 US dollars) if it's new." Of all the different types of hair extensions, human hair is the most coveted for its softness and versatility. The rising demand in Africa, and across the world, has had countries such as India, China, Brazil and Peru competing for the biggest share in the market. Virgin hair – that has never been dyed or chemically treated – is at the top of the market. Synthetic hair is much cheaper, but cannot be styled like real human hair. Wanjira selects the best hair pieces from the collection. She says competition for good hair among women working in the dumpsite is fierce, as they can make a good profit out of selling them to nearby salons. But not much of it goes to waste. Even if the quality is not the best, it can still be trimmed and sewn together to make cheaper hair pieces. "They are being used to make caps by the women that use sewing machines, but these are ready for braiding because they will be used and they will be washed and revert back to being new because of its texture. When there are many, they help support my livelihood because this is my job," says Wanjira. She has to collect a lot of hair to make a good profit out of it. "When there are many (hair pieces), they help support my livelihood because this is my job." Much of it is sold to hairdressers in Korogocho, a poor district across the river from Dandora. Dozens of women have set up makeshift hair salons in the local market. At a back alley in Korogocho, 29-year-old Mary Wanjiku washes the hair she recently bought from the dumpsite. She uses detergent to wash and rinse it, and sometimes applies oil and perfume to it to make it shiny and smell nice. She has been a hairdresser in Korogocho for nearly 10 years. But she is happy to be working there and says using hair from Dandora makes a lot of business sense to her.

There are entire families who spend whole days digging their way through the Dandora dumping site on the outskirts of Nairobi, trying to get enough food to survive. STORYLINE: Dandora is situated about fifteen kilometres (9 miles) from Nairobi. It is one of the poorest districts in the country. Some of the scavengers are trying to find different materials which they can recycle or resell in order to get a few Kenyan shillings (local currency) for food and rent. From the young to the elderly, all of these people are trying to sift through tonnes of waste in the desperate hope that they find something of value. Some are so hungry they eat whatever they find. Others have become specialists picking carefully through the garbage to find their chosen material or item which they will then sell. One boy, Benson Karanga, says he is looking for metals to sell. Few people in the area own their own homes and most rent meagre dwellings. For the people who spend their days digging, one person's disposable trash is their gain. And every valuable piece found in the dump may mean an extra night with a roof over their head, or a meal in their stomachs.

Sprawling over 12 hectares and home to scavengers who both live and work on the site, the Dandora waste disposal dump on the outskirts of Nairobi is Kenya's largest and one of the biggest in Africa. It was officially declared full in 2001, yet 2,000 tons of waste continues to find its way here every day. Due to health and environmental concerns, the Nairobi City Council claims it will relocate the dump, but this has been a slow-going process.

Nairobi's Dandora Municipal Dumpsite stretches as far as the eye can see. It was declared full in 2001 but has remained active, with 850 to 1,500 tons of waste arriving every day. Kenya last month implemented a ban on plastic bags, a major contributor to the towering piles of trash. … Let the pictures do the talking: subscribe to No Comment http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=NoCommentTV No Comment is brought to you by euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe.

Samuel Wanderi RIGU is the founder of Safi Organics Limited, a company that manufactures a low cost organic fertilizer from crops’ waste. Samuel saw that farmers were using expensive fertilizers to increase their yield, but instead the yield was decreasing. For him, this was inacceptable and he had to bring a solution to this problem. He teamed up with a group of people who shared the same vision to improve rural livelihoods and together, they came up with an organic fertilizer, which is 20% cheaper than the other fertilizers on the market. And according to farmers who have been using the organic fertilizer from Safi Organics Ltd, they have observed at least 30% increase in yields. “Some of the lessons I have derived from my entrepreneurship journey is that failure is inevitable and failure has its advantages. And if you don’t fail you will not grow. It’s through the failure that we really grow,” says Samuel.

A truck-load of human poo collected around Nakuru, a town in Kenya's Rift Valley is emptied on to drying beds by workers from the Nakuru Water and Sanitation Services Company (NAWASSCO). Human waste is the main raw material used at this processing site to make briquettes. The sludge is left out to dry for 2-3 weeks. The heat in the greenhouse reduces the moisture content from around 95 percent to below 20 percent. The dried-out sludge is then treated in a kiln at temperatures of about 700 deg… READ MORE : http://www.africanews.com/2017/07/06/human-poo-transformed-into-clean-fuel-for-kenya-s-urban-poor Africanews on YouTube brings you a daily dose of news, produced and realised in Africa, by and for Africans.
