Solid waste management

Solid waste management
Context & Issues

The municipality of Addis Ababa has made solid waste management one of its priorities.

Closing the existing dump site and replacing it with a new landfill site is an immediate priority.

Furthermore, three waste transfer centres will be created to optimise the transport of waste to the new facility.

Currently, more than 850 tonnes of waste are sent to the uncontrolled dump site in Koshe Reppi every day.
