Kampala has received international recognition for developing the *Smart Weyonje-App*. The technology has been applied in the city to ease service delivery in solid waste management.
The *Weyonje App*, developed by KCCA, was successfully introduced to the areas where emptying is done. The App is uploaded on mobile phones so residents can easily order emptying services for faecal sludge.
Citizens without smartphones contact the Village Health Team (VHT), which requests the service on their behalf. The faecal sludge is safely transported and managed at the treatment plant in Kampala. Data feeds digitally into the city’s data management dashboard, enabling the city to track progress in the emptying services.
Kampala City has been shortlisted for the International Award for promoting the use of smart technology in service delivery
