Improving Capacity for Recycling of Waste & Organic Materials

CTCN

Context

The state of national infrastructure and facilities for storage, collection, and transportation of solid waste is inadequate. Most enterprises working in the waste management field utilize inappropriate collection technology. Often the operation of waste collection and transport technology is too expensive, so that the poor cannot pay for the service. As a result waste is accumulating on the streets and presents a potential health risk for the people.

Requested CTCN Response

  • Conduct training in 15 communities on appropriate technologies and strategies for recycling of non-biodegradable materials such as plastic bags  
  • Develop and conduct trainings for women on how to make or produce charcoal briquettes out of dry leaves, saw dust and coconut shells
