Why gender perspectives need to be incorporated into waste management:
1. Waste is not necessarily a gender neutral concept
2. Women may have different needs and preferences on waste management service
3. Women’s gender responsibility for community cleanliness is often uncompensated, and when these voluntary activities become paid, women are often left out
4. Formalising waste activities can also force women out
