< prev - next > Waste management best_practices_iswm (Printable PDF)
Technical measures, including waste sorting, recycling
and composting, and infrastructural measures for
leachate collection and gas venting are all upgrading
the standard of waste management. Furthermore, the
utilisation of resources, such as planting trees,
introducing beehives, and other environmental measures
at the landfill site demonstrate a good approach for
maintaining a healthy environment. Concern for financial
viability (considering income from the sale of recyclables
and from the landfill site and the plan to collect user
charges), and long-term planning (as seen in the life of
the landfill site) for waste management are important
indicators of sustainable SWM practice.
Technical and financial assistance from organisations such
as UNDP-RUPP and GTZ-UDLE have played a major role
Overall process
in the strengthening of SWM planning. Similarly, the
formation of the TLO with its motivating role in waste
management at local level has been driving this practice
towards sustainability. Therefore, it can be concluded that
this is good practice, leading towards the fulfilment of the
municipal vision of a safe and clean municipal area.
