Subject: Re: Waste management in Kenya (Albert Lee)

March 16, 1999

Dear Albert Lee,

I do not know the answer to your question, but I do know to whom I would go if I wanted to find out what wastes have been generated and how have they been managed in Kenya, over the past half century (which is probably impossible to document):
United Nations Environmental Programmeat the UN in New York.
The U.S. Department of Commerce has an Office of the US Trade Representative for Africa at telephone 202-395-3430 or by mail: Winder Bldg., 600 17th St., NW, Washington, DC 20506. The Commerce Dept. also has country specific desks for export assistance, including for waste and scrap materials. But not to be chauvinistic about it, perhaps New Zealand has the same sort of serivce (I know that the UK has this sort of service for former colonies, which, if I'm not mistaken, Kenya is one).
By far the best source will be a domestic recycler or waste manager in Kenya. A Nairobi telephone book should tell you who that might be.
