dc.description.abstractInside the most recent decade, upgrades in innovation have seen e-squander become the quickest developing problem in the global economy. This has resulted in increasing environmental, health, and economic challenges to developed and developing countries. With increasing technological advancement in Kenya, e-waste has become a key policy challenge to the government and firms on how to effectively manage the increasing e-waste. The current study sought to examine how strategic factors have influenced effective e-waste management in Nairobi County. The study specifically examined how managerial capacity, institutional capacity, and resource capacity influence effective e-waste management in Nairobi City County. The findings of the study are expected to be of importance to the management of waste management firms in Nairobi City as it will help in their formulation of policies geared towards effective implementation of e-waste management practices. The study was anchored on the theory of waste management and the resource-based view theory. The study adopted a descriptive research design with the population of the study being drawn from 150 registered solid waste management firms in Nairobi County. The unit of observation for the study was the managers of the 150 firms. The study employed a census survey of the 150 managers. The study relied on structured questionnaires to collect quantitative data that was utilized in solving the research problem. The study pre-tested the research instrument with 10% of the sample respondents. The collected research data was analyzed using measures of central tendency, correlation analysis, and regression tests. The results were presented using bar graphs, charts, and tables. The study was able to obtain a response rate of 64%. The study has limited. The findings of the study indicate that strategic factors (managerial capacity, institutional capacity, and resource capacity) lead to 38.5% effective e-waste management. The study concludes that resource capacity and institutional capacity have a significant positive effect on effective ewaste management. The research further concludes that management capacity has an insignificant negative effect on effective e-waste management. The study recommends that waste management firms should seek collaborations with stakeholders in the county who can help improve their waste management programs. The study further recommends that management teams in waste firms should enhance their financial resources mobilization which can be key to enhancing investment in better infrastructure.en_US
