The project aimed at implementing one of the actions stated in Waste Management Strategy and Action Plan (WMSAP) for Negombo City.
During the consultative process for the development of Waste Management Strategy and Action Plan (WMSAP) for Negombo City, it was discovered that lack of a well-managed Resource Recovery Center (RRC) is one of the major factors hindering the sustainable waste management in Negombo City. Base on the discussion, an action “3.2. Setting up Resource Recovery Centre (RRC)” was included in the WMSAP. Considering the need for establishing RRC in Negombo City and a strong interest from Negombo Municipal Council (NMC), IGES Centre Collaborating with UNEP on Environmental Technologies (CCET) with the assistance of Janathakshan, an NGO and a local partner, has been providing technical assistance to NMC in the establishment of RRC as a pilot project.
