Solid Waste Management Technical Guideline For Municipalities Of Nepal
PDF File Size: 975 KB | Download   
With rapid urbanization and changing consumption patterns, solid waste management (SWM) has be-come a major challenge in Nepal’s urban entres, particularly the larger cities. Open waste piles are a common site and the work of municipalities’ is of-ten limited to sweeping the streets and dumping the waste in the nearest river or vacant land. Modern waste arrangement techniques, such as source separated door-to-door collection, recycling facilities and sanitary landfills, have not yet been introduced in most cities and the municipalities generally do not have the necessary skills or resources to manage the waste in the proper manner. These guidelines aim to assist municipal solid waste managers as well as policy makers in establishing efficient and effective solid waste management system.
