TakaTaka Solutions is a waste management business (‘TakaTaka’ stands for the Kiswahili word ‘waste’) and a social enterprise. Its mission is ‘to provide affordable and environmentally friendly waste management services to all income areas’.
TakaTaka Solutions was founded in 2011 to overcome the existing waste management situation in Nairobi and beyond. Most waste in Africa’s cities remains uncollected, causing severe health and environmental problems, in particular for the urban poor. In Nairobi 2.5 out of 3.5 million people cannot afford waste collection services.
Through its pioneering approach TakaTaka Solutions offers waste collection services to all income areas. Moreover, TakaTaka Solutions creates a greener and healthier environment by recycling and composting 80% (and more) of waste. Through its innovative franchising model, TakaTaka Solutions creates sustainable employment for underprivileged youth in lower income areas.
To achieve this TakaTaka Solutions brings together professionals from a wide variety of fields and backgrounds, jointly bringing together more than 30 years of waste management experience in both Africa and Europe.
