Municipalities in both the developed and developing worlds have become inundated by the volume of solid waste which they must process in order to assure the health and safety of their populace. Particularly in the developing world there is a problem of meeting capital andoperations costs necessary to support the collection-transportation-landfill model of waste management which is currently prevalent in the developed world. In addition many districts in developing countries cities do not have adequate road infrastructure for the passage of waste collection and processing of solid waste, putting the population of their cities in more and more danger from epidemics and other health risks.

The purpose of this project is to develop workable processes and strategies to better manager waste and promote recycling practices in a way that can benefit the urban poor. It is initiated by the Waste Busters a private sector non profit organization. The proposed implementing location is in Tehsil Municipal Administration, Gujrat. Three target groups each representing a segment of the urban poor, will be the key champions of the project. The project has identified the Shahdaula Welfare Trust (Neighbourhood Association Coordinating Committee) to represent the civil society since they have a proven track record in running community activities and has the capability of generating grassroots support and cooperation. The Tehsil Municipal Administration in turn, would provide the infrastructure and other basic supports. The project hopes to upgrade the hygienic condition and improve living conditions for the communities involved.

The presence in waste of materials with positive value represents a potential source of livelihood for the urban poor. This was true for medieval cities and rapidly industrialising cities of Europe and North America in the nineteenth century and also applies to developing countries today (Wilson, 2007). It has been estimated that up to 2% of the urban population in Asia and Latin America depend on waste picking for all or part of their livelihood (Medina, 2000).
