The implementation of sustainable integrated solid waste management is one of the key parts to addressing sustainable development in the current generation. Current global trends of population growth urban and consumerism have dramatically increased the generation of waste in urban area. Inadequate waste services have led to informal burning and dumping in streets and open spaces, which is degrading the environment and creating profound public health concerns. With no strategy in place to properly deal with Solid waste management, today‟s global trends will continue to exacerbate these problems. The management of municipal solid waste has become a problem in Mombasa. This is easily identified by the persistent heaps of uncollected waste found on the street sides or ubiquitous illegal dumps. The purpose of the study was to determine the factors influencing effective solid waste management in Kisauni. This study analysed the underlying factors affecting effective solid waste management in the region and suggested possible measures to tackle the problem. A survey of the households was conclude was conducted to determine reviews of the residents, and this were then incorporated into the findings and recommendations as documented in the last chapter of this report. Finally the results from the data analysis underscore the necessity of an integrated approach to solid waste management not only in Kisauni but in Mombasa County as a whole.
