Waste Management in Nepal
In Nepal, waste management is a infrastructure that has not been well managed. Many municipalities and cities lack the necessary training and capabilities in managing waste. You can see it from news time to time of some problem in the waste dump areas in Kathmandu.
Most of the waste in Nepal is said to be disposed as sanitary landfill but they may not be so sanitary.
Lack of knowledge in waste division, lack of sufficient infrastructure and waste management training and awareness has lead to haphazard waste management. While the amount of waste has been increasing, the management of waste has been improving slower that the increasing waste. This has lead to series of dissatisfaction of both citizen, civil society and the government.
For more than a decade, solid waste management in Nepal’s Kathmandu valley has been a challenge, particularly in terms of landfill siting. The current practice of illegally dumping solid waste on river banks has created a significant environmental and public health problem. The goal of this study was to conduct an evaluation of solid waste management in Nepal using published data. According to the data, 70% of the solid waste generated in Nepal is of organic origin. As a result, composting solid waste and utilizing it on the land is the best method of solid waste disposal. This reduces the amount of waste transported to the landfill and extends its life.
