ORGANIC WASTE MANAGEMENT

Currently, there is no source-segregation and all municipal waste is transported and disposed of at the landfill. However, some of the municipality's green waste (prunings from public areas) is being composted at Hualpen.

Our Programme is supporting Concepcion in improving their current source-separation project so that additional organics can be diverted from households and converted to compost at the Hualpen facility.
