Sustainable solid waste management is one of the primary functions of all the city authorities across the world. The city authorities therefore must methodically and wisely plan, implement and monitor all the services concerning municipal solid waste management. However, cities are constantly under stress in meeting these challenges with limited financial and technical resources and scarce infrastructure availability. In particular, the collection and transportation of municipal solid waste is a critical component of solid waste management value chain. All other associated processes including treatment, recycling and scientific disposal can function proficiently only if the collection and transportation of waste are adequately planned and executed. The efficiency of collection and transport needs to be very high to ensure that all the waste generated in the city is subjected to appropriate treatment, recyclables are extracted, and inerts and rejects are disposed of scientifically in the landfills. There is a need to design an efficient mechanism and strengthen the existing system for the collection and transportation of solid wastes to make the system more robust, well-organized, efficient, and smart.

As part of its ongoing collaboration Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites city officials and urban managers from Tanzania to an exclusive one day online training programme on efficient collection and transportation. The objective of the programme is to provide a better understanding of the critical aspects of the collection and transportation in the waste management value chain

Participants will be awarded a Certificate of Completion upon successful completion of the programme.
