Citation: SNEL, M., 1999. Social stigmas and the waste collection scheme. IN: Pickford, J. (ed). Integrated development for water supply and sanitation: Proceedings of the 25th WEDC International Conference, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 30 August-2 September 1999, pp.350-353.
Abstract: The purpose of the following paper is to highlight the going debate presented in the previous WEDC conference paper on the role of NGOs/CBOs in solid waste management in Hyderabad (India) (Refer to Snel, 1998). The purpose of this paper is to create a better understanding of the ‘integrated’(linked) perception of waste and how this affects those working in, for example, primary waste collection schemes. This paper will briefly examine solid waste management in Hyderabad. It will go on to focus on a short description of the community-based waste collection scheme. After this it will describe the perceptional changes towards waste workers emerging specifically in urban areas. Finally there will be a focus on the future of the scheme specifically with the potential threat that privatisation may bring towards waste workers in the scheme.
Description: This is a conference paper.
