Waste is an increasing problem in many communities around the world. When there is no safe and effective system in place to manage waste, it collects around houses, on streets, in drains, and on informal dumping sites. It impacts people’s health and dignity, and harms birds, animals and the environment. Good waste management is needed to ensure the safety of communities, and to protect the environment.
