Collection of Municipal Solid Waste, Key issues for Decision-makers in Developing Countries
The collection of municipal solid waste is a public service that has important impacts on public health and the appearance of towns and cities. Unfortunately many urban administrations seem to be losing the battle of coping with the ever-increasing quantities of waste. The challenge is made greater by the diversity of materials in the waste, which is no longer mainly food waste and ash, but includes more and more plastic packaging, paper and discarded electronic equipment.
The booklet is written for decision-makers in the fields of local politics, management and technical issues and who are concerned to upgrade the solid waste collection service for which they are responsible.
