What is the Data Saying?

The collected data in the surveyed area showed communities’ desire of having effective waste management systems, as most of them are already paying for the existing services, which are ineffective and lack consistency — over 60% of the interviewed community members responded that they have collection services but it’s often unscheduled making them unable to track the collection days.
