More plans for litter management in Filabusi
Published: 14 September 2017 (176 Views)
Insiza Rural District Council is impressed by the unprecedented citizen participation in the management of solid waste in Filabusi.

Habakkuk Trust Community Advocacy Action Team started advocating for the management of solid waste in the Ward in 2015 where they wanted to address disposal of solid waste which was becoming a health hazard in the Ward.

"What we are now doing as a council is initiated by the community," Moyo said.

"The issue of managing disposal of solid waste in this town was initiated by the Action Team in 2015 and their advocacy work led to the introduction of an Environmental Management Plan. The Action Team has been working tirelessly to ensure that Filabusi is clean."

Moyo said the local authority has since put a safer around a tractor which they use to collect refuse bins. They are also planning to build three lockable litter cages in areas where there is fast litter generation.

The council is also planning to fence the dumpsite, create sports ground, allow cultivation, and create an improved dumpsite as ways of managing solid waste disposal in the Ward.

He added, "We have also drafted Waste Management Policy which will be presented at the full council meeting in this week. Through this policy we want to encourage cleanliness in this town. We are also targeting vendors so that they report those who dump litter on undesignated areas."

However, Moyo lamented that the biggest challenge at the moment is disposal of diapers and open defecation.
