Investment

Increased investment in waste management infrastructure, personnel, vehicles and equipment is essential
to improving waste management services. Investment in this areas could lay the foundation for overall
service performance. However, this should be financially sustainable and focused on the key needs as
outlined in this Solid and Liquid Waste Management Strategy.

Service Performance

Improved service performance in the area of solid and liquid waste is required to protect the human and
natural environment in the ODRS. Improved service performance would ensure the realization of the
objectives of the strategy. It will also be an incentive for service recipients to pay for the service.

Public Awareness

Significant improvement in awareness of waste management issues is required across all stakeholder
groups to assist the local authority to improve its service delivery. The public must be made aware of the
need for proper waste management, and strongly encouraged to actively participate in protection of their
living environment and that of the ODRS. Local by-laws should be devised to impose fines for littering and
improper dumping of waste.

Cost Recovery

Improved cost recovery will be essential to improving waste management practices, and ensuring that
waste management services are financially sustainable. Appropriate mechanism for levying and collecting
waste management fees should be phased in overtime. The fees should be set at reasonable levels to
avoid illegal disposal and equitable access to service.

Stakeholder Linkages

Significant strides towards stakeholder linkages are required to assistant the local authority to deliver on
its mandate on waste management. Public and private sector partnership should be forged, particularly
with tour operations to minimize the unit cost of waste management in relatively inaccessible areas.
