SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE THE MSW COLLECTION IN LOUGA CITY, SENEGAL

This paper presents the results of a study conducted by CeTAmb, with the collaboration of two Italian NGOs (CESVI and CISV) and the local Municipality, in order to identify actions that could be adopted to improve the current MSW management in Louga. Louga (Figure 1) is a city placed in the northern part of Senegal, 200 km far from Dakar. Its territory spreads on a wide sandy plain whose altitude varies between 30 and 40 m above sea level. The region is characterised by a sahelian climate with a raining season (annual precipitation rate is about 300 mm/y) between July and September and a dry season from October to June.

This paper presents the results of a study conducted by CeTAmb, with the collaboration of two Italian NGOs (CESVI and CISV) and the local Municipality, in order to identify actions that could be adopted to improve the current MSW management in Louga, a city placed in the northern part of Senegal. Two different solutions were analysed: the use of street containers and the door to door systems. This second alternative seems more appropriate since it presents much lower capital costs and causes a significant employment increasing. Furthermore, it is more suitable to Louga urban structure, characterized by zones inaccessible by trucks, and it guarantees a more effective and widespread waste collection.

MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT IN CHENNAI CITY, INDIA
© IWWG International Waste Working Group (10/2007)
Municipal Solid Waste includes commercial and residential wastes generated in municipal or notified areas, in either solid or semi-solid form excluding industrial hazardous wastes, but including treated bio-medical wastes (MoEF, 2000). The quality and quantity of MSW generated by a particular community will vary according to their socio-economic status, cultural habits, urban structure, population and commercial activities. Asian countries are facing MSWM problems due to the rapid growth in MSW generation rate. The total quantity of waste generated by 23 metro cities in India was 30,000 tpd in 1999, which has increased considerably to about 52,000 tpd (Inance et al, 2004).

SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT IN SMALL MUNICIPALITIES: THE CASE HISTORY OF PIRAÍ (RJ), BRAZIL
© IWWG International Waste Working Group (10/2007)
Urban solid waste management in developing countries has been one of the major problems faced by public administration, and many municipalities have deficient domestic waste collection, poor street cleaning services and their waste disposal in open dumps. The management of urban solid waste is presently a serious problem in the majority of Brazilian municipalities. Although there has been some improvement in the past few years, more than 70% of the municipalities still dispose of their waste in open dumps, with notorious consequences to the environment and public health. In Rio de Janeiro State, only three municipalities have sanitary landfills licensed by the Environment State Agency.
