Presence of informal waste sector is a typical characteristic of waste management in developing Asian countries. Formal (large) scale material recovery facilities are also gaining their foothold hold in Asia due to enormous business opportunities. Often, the contribution of informal sector is undervalued and unrecognized due to its informality and unorganized nature. This causes conflicting situation between formal and informal waste sector. Nevertheless, in Asia there have been attempts made to recognize, strengthen, integrate and reconcile with the informal sector recycling activity with modern integrated waste management and build socially responsible recycling businesses.

Create 3R Knowledge Base

3R Knowledge Hub is continuously working towards capturing, creating and disseminating reduce, reuse, recycle (3R) knowledge products on various topics related to waste management in Asia. We continually seek our knowledge partners’ support in doing so.  We therefore request all the interested parties to support us with information on the following-

  1. City Waste Profile: City waste Profile is an assessment of waste management situation in a city. Local authorities and/or any interested individual and organization is welcome to share the information.
  2. Case Study: Case studies that highlight any flagship projects on solid waste management and 3R are welcome.
  3. Technology Factsheet: 3R recycling technology manufacturers and distributors are requested to share the available recycling technologies. Please note 3RKH do not endorse any of the technology or trade name, the sheer purpose is to share information.
