As part of its technical assistance project, OMSAR has prepared an Integrated Regional Waste Management Plan for the waste generation in the entire District of Tyre. The aim of the master plan was to set the framework that will stimulate the formation of an integrated sustainable waste management system that will:
Reduce the environmental and health impacts of waste management
Enhance the resource recovery activities
Increase the efficiency and the cost – effectiveness of the existing system
Strengthen the institutional development and the cost recovery
The plan was designed in a way where social and institutional aspects take the same weight as the purely technical, environmental and economic considerations. The analysis of both the baseline assessment and the proposed plan has been made based on the “hardware” and “software” components of waste management.
