Lack of awareness hampers city waste management

Lack of awareness remains a major problem in solid waste management as people in the city and municipal areas continue to dump wastes in an unplanned way. About half of the solid waste generated every day cannot be collected due to their unplanned and haphazard dumping, a major challenge for solid waste management, speakers said at the second Bangladesh Solid Waste Management Conference held in the Sonargaon Hotel on Monday.
