Nairobi County’s largest dumpsite, Dandora dumpsite, may soon cease to exist as City Hall plans to turn it into a recreational park.
This comes after the county government said that plans are underway to eventually decommission the dumpsite as a way of achieving sustainable waste management in the capital city.
