PROper Mangement of Municipal Solid WastE to create a Waste Free Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka generates an estimated 6700 metric tons of waste daily where only 2800 metric tons of waste is collected. Absence of efficient system to clean up the waste has brought about a need to create a well-organized waste management system in Sri Lanka which must be prioritized to avoid the spread of toxic chemicals and pollution in the environment.
In this Public Private Partnership project, jointly funded by DEG and Holcim (Lanka) Limited and implemented by Holcim (Lanka) Limited in partnership with ASSIST, a waste management complex will be set-up at the Seeduwa waste dump site to provide an appropriate solution to unorganized dumping and burning of waste. The waste management complex is surrounded by two key industrial zones called Katunayake and Biyagama, the country’s largest housing scheme called Raddolugama and main airport in Sri Lanka, the Katunayake Bandaranayalka international airport.
