Abstract: This book presents the findings of a Department for International Development (DFID) funded project (R6540). It has been written for practitioners, municipal staff, non-government organizations and students interested in promoting micro-enterprises for the collection of solid waste. The project has identified guidelines based on a thorough understanding of the existing processes. More than twenty cases were studied in four cities in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The roles and responsibilities of the different stakeholders have been investigated, some of which (including sweepers) have not been considered in the past.
