A successful waste management initiative within communities

13 July 2021

A waste management initiative was successfully piloted at both the household and community level of the Bugongi cluster project led by Raising The Village (RTV). Lack of waste management leads to poor sanitation and environmental degradation. By the end of the project, 82% of the community households were in compliance with waste management practices, with 97% of these households separating and sorting non-biodegradable and bio-degradable waste. At the household level the separation of waste has been an effective development in compost production and waste reduction. Litter within the communities and trading centers has been significantly reduced thank to the 58 waste bins provided and that are being used continuously .
