measures, uncontrolled squatter settlements, poor co-
operation from the public as well as the private sector
and inadequate stakeholder coordination. In addition,
the transfer station at the main road of Bharatpur is
causing problems for the local people.
This municipality is located on the trade route between
major urban centres such as Birgunj, Nepalgunj,
Kathmandu and Pokhara. Considerable numbers of
private industries are located around Bharatpur. The
municipality's mechanism for coordinating the public
and private sectors has played a vital role in waste
management. However, the daily monitoring of waste
management by the Community Development Section
has not been sufficient.
Effective involvement of both private and public sectors
has made it possible to improve waste management and
provide door-to-door collection. The role of the private
sector in recycling is important and it can contribute to
sustainable waste management by reducing the
quantities of plastics. Furthermore, Practical Action Nepal,
UNDP-PPPUE, UDLE and Lumanti have together played
a significant role by motivating private sector operators
to get involved not only in waste collection and disposal
but also in recycling, thereby creating a significant
number of jobs and benefits.
Lastly, sound financial management and regular and
reliable payment of the contractor are important for
satisfactory private sector participation. The Municipality
has achieved its target of waste management with active
involvement of the private sector, minimising municipal
expenditure by means of effective management practice.
Replicable best practice
and lessons learnt
Both for waste management and in recycling activities,
considerable numbers of private organisations are
expressing their interest. It is believed that significant
numbers of jobs can be created for poor people and
increased effectiveness in waste management can be
achieved with minimal additional municipal expenditure.
