A boy over looks at the garbage dump site while searching for plastics in order to sell.

This move came after the council acquired a 100 Hectors of  land from  the GK prison , which they intend to build a modern sanitary fill site where by, the garbage will be recycled into new papers bags or bricks preventing pollution of environment.
Speaking in a meeting with reporters, Nakuru town Mayor Mohamed Suraw assured the Nakuru residents that he had finalized everything with the ministry of home affairs and it was only a matter of time before they begin a major construction at the new dump site.

“We have been able to buy a new piece of land from GK prison this is after consultation with the Ministry of home affairs that all was agreed for us to buy the land” the Mayor said.
Suraw went on to add that, they had been given KES 700 million by the World Bank for the construction of the dump site, and the money  is not with the council but with the treasury awaiting for some few logistics before they embark on the project.
