Infertilility of soil in some parts of the country will soon become history after the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) started garbage management projects in urban centres.

The urban centres that will benefit from the project funded by the World Bank include Mbarara, Fort Portal, Jinja and Mukono. Irene Mbabazi, a farmer in Rutete sub-county in Kabarole district, said the project will help farmers access cheap manure.

“The cheap manure will help us to save time and money,” she said. Herbert Ndyomugenyi, another farmer in Harugongo, Kabarole, said the manure would boost farmers’ harvests and prevent pollution in urban centres.

Kitere disposal waste plant, which was set up last year in Fort Portal municipal council, collects garbage from schools, hospitals and restaurants.

The municipal environment officer, Gladys Natugonza, said the council expects to get sh300m annually from the sale of manure.
