This quantity can generate Sh 13 billion ($130 million) annually if properly recycled according to a report released last year by the International Livestock Research Institute. Lack of an effective waste disposal mechanism and a rapidly growing population have worsened the situation resulting in huge piles of garbage at residential and business premises.

Various shots of children and people searching on the garbage. 13. Close up with zoom out to wide shot of the Dandora dumping site LEAD-IN: To the average person a rubbish dump may be just a rubbish dump, but to poor people in Kenya it is their way of life. There are entire families who spend whole days digging their way through the Dandora dumping site on the outskirts of Nairobi, trying to get enough food to survive. STORYLINE: Dandora is situated about fifteen kilometres (9 miles) from Nairobi. It is one of the poorest districts in the country. Some of the scavengers are trying to find different materials which they can recycle or resell in order to get a few Kenyan shillings (local currency) for food and rent. From the young to the elderly, all of these people are trying to sift through tonnes of waste in the desperate hope that they find something of value. Some are so hungry they eat whatever they find. Others have become specialists picking carefully through the garbage to find their chosen material or item which they will then sell. One boy, Benson Karanga, says he is looking for metals to sell. Few people in the area own their own homes and most rent meagre dwellings. For the people who spend their days digging, one person's disposable trash is their gain. And every valuable piece found in the dump may mean an extra night with a roof over their head, or a meal in their stomachs.
