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
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
• 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
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.
