Kelvin manages the warehouse for us with support from Peter, Joseph is our Safety and Security Officer, together they handle collections, coordinating transport, loading and unloading, receiving and then processing all the e-waste.
They also manage the local disposal of fractions from the dismantling and packing of items that are shipped to Dubai where Kenya does not have the facilities to deal with them. This requires identifying and building relationships with the local formal and informal recycling community.
Both Kelvin and Peter started with us as daily paid workers, they now supervise on average 8 daily contract workers that assist with the dismantling. As we grow, we see the development of our staff as just as important as our environmental impact and we continue to support them as much as our resources allow.
