Kampala Industrial and Business Park (KIBP) features as the premier and the best planned industrial complex in Uganda’s history that impacts the inner Murchison Bay of Lake Victoria. The number of operational establishments in the park has raised environmental concerns; air, land and water pollution are significantly magnified by the close proximity of industries. Furthermore, in-dustrial trucks have created unprecedented traffic congestion on Kampala-Jinja highway because the highway design cannot accommodate the traffic. Industries are producing volumetric wastes, and rendering the surrounding areas unacceptable for residential, shopping and recreational purposes as previously proposed in the construction design. This cross-sectional study characterized the wastes being generated in the park and prospected the future generation trend of the wastes. Results indicate that 39 assorted types of wastes are being produced in KIBP. Annually, 3214.8 metric tons of wastes are produced in KIBP and this is prognosticated to triple in the next 5 years with new industries being set up. Chemical analysis revealed that 3% of the wastes currently generated are hazardous; 16% are non-biodegradable; 18% are metallic whereas the residual 63% are putrescible. Recycling of wastes should be encouraged to reduce the volume of wastes generated in KIBP.
