Malindi landfill will be moved out of town

PWAM's battle is bearing fruit: sign up

27-03-2023 by Freddie del Curatolo

One of the battles embraced by the responsible citizens of Malindi, united under the acronym PWAM (Progress Welfare Association Malindi), is about to bear fruit.
The city dumpsite (which is then of the two districts of Malindi and Magarini) located in Casuarina will be relocated outside the city center, to an area in the Magarini sub-district. The news has been confirmed by Environment Ministry. The decision has been strongly desired by PWAM, which has made it one of its goals for the past four years, ever since the association, of which we at Malindikenya.net are also part and among the founders, called for differentiated collection and recycling of plastics instead of burning them, producing toxic fumes that have long haunted the Casuarina residential district and especially the Maweni people's village. 
Several times we went to the landfill to assess the terrible situation and with PWAM, Rotary, Chamber of Commerce (KNCCI) and Red Cross, we also assisted the people of the nearest villages during the pandemic.
PWAM these days celebrates 4 years of activism for the good of Malindi, dealing with the environment, transparency, solidarity and welfare aimed at growing and reviving the township that not more than 20 years ago was considered one of the pearls of coastal Kenya. Supporting the association, even if not physically but by signing up or making a donation, for those who care about Malindi is not only an acknowledgement but a help for the volunteer work its operational members do.
"Partnerships between the different Nationalities, Institutions & Communities have been strong enablers in   achieving most of the stated goals. 
 Italian investors in Malindi have been part of the transformative journey of growing the economy and protecting the environment and we urge more to join  PWAM".
