WASTE is an organisation for development projects in countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. WASTE aims at sustainable improvement of the urban environment and amelioration of the living conditions of the low-income population.
WASTE is active in four fields: Solid waste management and resource recovery; Low-cost and ecological sanitation; Community based environmental improvement; Micro- and small enterprise development.
An important focal point for WASTE is the role of small-scale entrepreneurs and their (potential) contribution to the provision of urban services e.g. in resource recovery and the removal of urban waste.
In its work WASTE applies the ISWM (Integrated Sustainable Waste Management) methodology
