Enabling factors

  • Provision of the brand to the franchisee.
  • Provision of tools and equipment to the franchisee.
  • Provision of training and awareness to the franchisee.
  • Enhanced access to the market for the delivery of waste management services.

Lessons learned

  • The concept of the franchise in its entirety is critical when setting up an innovation that involves the selling of franchise models. 
  • The ambiguity of the laws causes hindrances to many youths and women subscribing to service provision. 
  • The mindset of youths and women towards the provision of waste collection services creates a subscription barrier among them. 
  • Reliance on the county government to provide waste removal does not work.
