Trace seeks to pioneer production of eco-friendly, affordable and high quality building products starting with roofing tiles using discarded post-consumer wastes such as plastics and glass as input materials. We aim to produce durable building materials while solving the problem of waste in Kenya.

The pilot is based in Gilgil, Nakuru County in Kenya. Nakuru is the fourth largest urban centre in Kenya after Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu and also among the fastest growing towns in East Africa. This has led to intensive pressure for urban environmental services such as solid waste management which the county government has been overwhelmed in managing. The town produces approximately 300 tonnes of waste per day with less than 60% being collected.

To enhance cleaner urban cities, reduce blockage of urban drainage systems clogged by plastic waste and promote job creation in the recycling process in Kenya
