The problem of solid waste management is the biggest challenge facing cities in developing countries. Population increase, rapid urbanization and the rise in the standard of living in developing countries have greatly accelerated the amount of the municipal solid waste generation and the resulting pressure on public services. Aside from the high costs, solid waste management is plagued by a lack of awareness of the various factors that influence the entire system. There is an urgent need to sustainably manage the waste that we generate so as to reduce the negative impacts of waste on the earth. So, we are here with this particular sample project. Adoption of sustainable waste management practices has proven to reduce pollution, produce energy, and conserve natural resources. The proposed community based project on sustainable waste management intends to work on the different aspects to improve waste management and sensitize communities and stakeholders on aspects of SWM, build capacities of staff of waste management institutions and develop linkages with private sector for collaboration for sustainable waste management.
