Pollution Control and Reduction of Environmental Burden in Solid Waste Management (ReEB Waste)

 

1.    Background
The Government of Japan, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), has been providing various assistances to the Government of Sri Lanka in the field of Solid Waste Management (SWM), since the National Strategy for Solid Waste Management was established in the year 2000.
These efforts have improved sanitation problems such as uncollected wastes and clandestine dumping, which were recognized in the above mentioned study, on SWM in secondary cities from 2002 to 2003. In recent years, environmental improvement of waste disposal sites and waste minimization by composting are of growing significance, as waste generation amount is increasing in line with economic development.
To cope with these challenges, a technical cooperation program, “Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS) - Pollution Control and Environmental Restoration Techniques for Solid Waste Landfills in Sri Lanka”, was carried out between 2011 and 2016, and several techniques were developed. A guide for utilizing the techniques, hereinafter referred to as “SATREPS Guide”, is underway for its publication.
“ReEB Waste” aims to verify the practical usefulness of the techniques presented in the SATREPS Guide in the field through implementation of pilot projects in a few selected Local Authorities, and disseminate the guide to improve the environmental situation of as many final disposal sites in Sri Lanka as possible.
