Integrated urban waste management in the Cantones of Marcabelì and Balsas

To strengthen the public management of solid wastes in the cantons of Marcabelí and Balsas, togetherw with Marbal we have created a system of waste management and collection.

Starting with all the preliminary activities (baseline, environmental impact study, etc.) we developed an integrated waste management plan andconstructed a dump and a center of garbage and recycling collection. An awareness campaign has been started among the population , together with trainings for the MARBAL staff.

In partnership with the association of disabled, we have then implemented activities of the paper recycling.
