The challenge of plastic waste has been a persisting menace and thus this topic is worth documenting for posterity. The work focuses on the role of informal plastic waste recovery and its socio-economic procedures in the town of Kisumu city, Kenya. The city which is at the shores of Lake Victoria is thretened by waste pollution and other pollutants including the water hyacinth.

Fear of the perceived and dangers of waste, have precluded society from making changes in the waste stream but the informal sector becomes handy for their role in recovery.
