Conclusions and lesson learnt
The approaches used by Hetauda municipality, CBOs
and NGOs for mobilising the community to reduce waste
quantities form the major lesson that can be learnt from
this case. These approaches have benefited from the
effective involvement of a considerable number of civil
society organisations, such as the Navajiwan Jyoti club.
Conditions have been established that encourage at-
source segregation, waste sorting, the trading of
recyclables, and the use of compost bins and suiro
hooks. In addition, the involvement of organisations
like GTZ-UDLE, UNDP, UEIP, and UN-Habitat has played
a vital motivational role. The municipality has been
able to support civil society's involvement in promoting
waste reduction at source.
Replicable best practice
Approaches from private organisations and TLOs
could play a significant role in developing at-source
segregation of solid waste. The suiro programme
plays a major role in promoting the recovery of plastic
waste. Ultimately, this case demonstrates that
partnerships for training and community mobilisation
are effective tools for developing sustainable waste
