Rising Public Awareness

Total Client: 26

We organize pubic awareness campaign along with local government, community and organization to overcome waste management issue, health hazard and environmental pollution.

Raising awareness about municipal solid waste management is a critical component of effective waste
management. It is important for key stakeholders to be aware of a city’s waste management activities and
have a strong understanding of the benefits of proper solid waste management. Although many challenges
arise when raising awareness about solid waste management, a variety of communication techniques can be
used to address them.

Importance of Raising Awareness about Solid
Waste Management
Raising awareness about a city’s municipal solid waste
(MSW) management activities and the benefits of proper
solid waste management can result in increases in:
• Use of city waste collection services by the public and
private sectors
• Funding for waste management from local elected officials
• Adoption and enforcement of local waste management
policies by local elected officials
• Support for local-level activities from national governments
• Public participation in organic diversion and recycling
Each of these outcomes can contribute to a city’s efforts
to reduce the impacts of waste management on health, the
economy, the environment, and society.
Challenges to Raising Awareness about Solid
Waste Management
There are many barriers to raising awareness about a city’s
waste management activities and the benefits of proper
solid waste management. These barriers, which vary by
stakeholder type, include:
• Lack of funds and capacity
• Embedded cultural practices, behavioral norms, and beliefs
(e.g., the belief that waste has no value, which is a challenge
for effective source separation and recycling programs)
• Lack of familiarity with the economic opportunities
associated with waste management
• Capacity limitations of waste management agencies
(e.g., lack of technical and financial resources for outreach)
• Unsupportive legal and regulatory frameworks
• Lack of time or interest from key stakeholders.
