National e-waste management centre launched

The Government of Uganda through the national steering committee on e-waste management has launched a national e-waste management centre.

The centre was developed by a group of stakeholders including spearheaded by the National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA), Uganda Communication Commission (UCC), Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), and the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) among others.

The national e-waste management centre is expected to be the major e-waste management facility in the country and will be under the stewardship of the NEC with oversight, regulation and coordination by NEMA.

According to the officials, initially, the facility shall collect, sort,dismantle and dispose e-waste and shall progress towards a refurbishment and recycling facility.

It is expected that regional collection centres shall be established to supplement the national centre.

Officials said that the advantage of this set-up is that it will ride on the expertise of already existing waste treatment and disposal facilities located in Nakasongola managed by the same facility, which also has high regard to security for the waste received.
