The Nairobi government has accused private garbage collectors of dumping waste in the CBD at night.
Environment director Leah Oyake told the Star yesterday some private garbage collectors are angry because their licences to collect garbage in the CBD were withdrawn in favour of one contractor.
She said City Hall withdrew the licences and awarded the contract to one company for easy follow-up.
"Before Creative Consolidated was awarded the contract to manage the CBD, there were different companies doing waste collection," Oyake said.
"At one point when Creative Consolidated came on board, the CBD was very clean but because of sabotage, the private garbage collectors started dumping waste on Mfangano Street, Kirinyaga Road, Timboroa and the whole of Lower CBD."
She said several trucks were impounded dumping waste on Mfangano Street on Monday night.
Oyake said the county government will withdraw their licenses.
A senior officer at the county told the Star that the private garbage collectors collude with inspectorate officers to dump the waste in the CBD.
