Integrate waste management in Chiclayo

EBP helps the city of Chiclayo in Northern Peru to develop, implement and communicate the ad-vantages of an integral waste management program.

Waste management represents a major challenge for many cities and municipalities in Peru. Garbage dumps on the outskirts of cities and largely ineffective waste management programs are widespread. The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) therefore helped the city of Chiclayo in Northern Peru to improve its waste management system. This work included the construction of a disposal site and a transfer station, the initiation of organizational changes in waste collection and disposal practices, the introduction of management improvements and the spearheading of a broad-based campaign to raise public awareness of the issues involved.
