Solid waste management (SWM) deals with the growing waste problem in developing and emerging countries. Waste generation and the diverse streams of waste and recyclable materials are increasing in fast growing urban areas and centres. Today’s waste management solutions often have negative impact on public health, environment and climate. Environmental awareness has gained ground; new laws and regulations related to environmental protection and solid waste management are adapted. However, waste management systems often cannot cope with the increasing amounts of garbage. The competent authorities at all levels struggle to upgrade and maintain their SWM systems according to their national laws because of budget constraints and lack of expertise.
GOPA Infra offers an integrated solid waste management approach. We provide sustainable, comprehensive and professional expertise and cost-effective solutions to SWM stakeholders at local, regional and national levels. In all our services climate change mitigation and adaptation measures are considered to ensure holistic solutions. GOPA Infra’s consultancy services include support in the development of the institutional and regulatory SWM framework, planning and implementation of tailor-made SWM systems. This includes waste minimisation strategies, reuse of commodities, viable recycling options and optimised waste logistics. We also provide assistance in design and construction of solid waste treatment and disposal facilities.
