Conclusions and lesson learnt
It can be concluded that the involvement of the private
sector can contribute to effective waste handling and
door-to-door collection. Programmes supported by
INGOs such as UNDP-PPPUE/RUPP have played a
significant role in the implementation of the model of
partnership between the private sector and local
government. The partnership between BSMC and the
contractor Silt had previously made useful progress
by introducing waste collection charges, and by
improving coordination with stakeholders. Improved
customer satisfaction and acceptance of service charges
have been important steps towards sustainability. The
setting of service charges for different categories of user
has been a notable achievement by BSMC which could
usefully be adopted by other municipalities in Nepal.
Replicable best practice
This case shows that a significant number of jobs can
be created for poor people and that the effectiveness of
waste management services can be improved with
minimal municipal expenditure by a well structured
partnership with the private sector. For such partnerships
to be effective, the municipality should be able to attract
and motivate private sector partners.
