The management of solid waste in Sierra Leone poses major burdens on local councils, and collection and disposal services are often limited.
This 20 minute film details the activities and learning from two WASH Facility pilot projects undertaken in the cities of Bo and Makeni. A major component of the projects were how to develop and support the local private sector and maximise the financial value of waste through efficient collection, recycling and re-use.
This film is likely to be of interest to those financing and working in solid waste management in Sierra Leone, together with organisations interested in local private sector development and income generation.
