The increased interest in e-waste recycling comes as Kenya enters a new regulatory regime, with guidelines that are meant to steer the formation of a new policy to support recyclers of obsolete mobiles, fridges, televisions, and computers, among other electronic items.

Our engagement with HP will allow us to manage our own end of life equipment from schools and provide a local service where there is currently no provision for IT e-waste recycling, said Eoghan Crosby, the technical director at Camara. The plant is expected to handle 500 tonnes of e-waste in a year.
