      Sectors:

      ISWA considers three overall priorities for waste management during the period of the pandemic of COVID-19: 

      1. Countries, States/Provinces and Cities should ensure that waste management, recycling services, treatment and disposal facilities will not be disrupted and no extra risks for public health will be created by improper waste management. Waste management workers, especially those in waste collection, should take additional precautions and ensure health & safety procedures to be protected by any potential infection by the waste streams and/or the equipment.
