RESIDENTS of Jinja Municipality are to start a garbage recycling project to generate income and improve sanitation, state minister for trade Nathan Igeme Nabeta has said.
Nabeta said a feasibility study was done by Anthony Perskett, an expert in environmental protection. “Residents will be required to select natural garbage which will later be transformed into bricks, blocks and tiles,” Nabeta said.
He said the proceeds of the project will help to improve social services and people’s standards of living.
Nabeta said the project would relieve town dwellers of the sh2,000 tax for garbage collection.
In another development, an electric train, plying the Jinja-Kampala-Entebbe, will be inaugurated this year.
“We are opting for aerial train. Because of accident fear, the train will run at 200km per hour, taking a record 20 minutes between Jinja and Kampala,” Perskett said.
