PacWastePlus Regional Projects
PacWastePlus is delivering projects both regionally, and directly in each participating country.
How we are assisting the region with improved waste management?
PacWastePlus is investing in regional projects that support and improve waste management and positive environmental outcomes for businesses, community groups, and social enterprises. The PacWastePlus team has worked closely with government teams from each country to develop projects that will assist with the efficient and effective management of waste in the region.

Advance Recovery Fees and Deposits
- This regional project will be to raise awareness of ARDF systems and guide decision-makers through the operational, financial, and legislative factors to design and implement their own successful system to enable sustainable financing for waste management.
- This regional project is assisting countries to effectively remediate legacy asbestos, and regulate the use, transport, and disposal of asbestos to protect human health from the harmful effects caused by exposure. Activities will include targeted public awareness, development of legislation, regulations, and a regional template Code of Practice to improve management and handling.
Behaviour Change Pilot Projects
- This regional project will assist regional countries to change community attitude and behavior, their relationship to waste, or beliefs, social norms, and how it can contribute towards sustainable waste management by identifying opportunities for behavioral interventions in improving waste management and in achieving a more circular economy.
Disaster Waste Management
- This regional project is assisting countries to be more resilient to natural disasters through the development of national disaster waste taskforces, and the promotion and implementation of the regional disaster waste management guideline, and a partnership with the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (FRDP).
Healthcare Waste Management
- This regional project is assisting countries to improve healthcare waste management through the repair and maintenance of healthcare waste technology, assessment of alternative technologies, development of national strategies, and local plans, and provision of equipment and training to reduce the risk of exposure to this waste type.
- PacWastePlus is assisting Pacific Island Countries to improve the management of End-Of-Life vehicles and End-of-Life Tyres by providing guidelines and technical notes on safe handling and dismantling and options for in-country management of these items.
Regional Bulky Waste Management
- This regional project is assisting Pacific Island Countries to improve the management of End-Of-Life vehicles and End-of-Life Tyres by providing guidelines and technical notes on safe handling and dismantling and options for in-country management of these items.
Regional Course Development
- This project intends to enhance regional capacity development opportunities for waste management training and courses development based on country needs.
- Through this regional project, we intend to involve and emphasise the important role that schools play as an educational agent sensitising future generations on waste management

Regional Bulky Waste Management
Bulky Waste is identified as wastes that are too large to be collected through regular waste collection services. When not managed well, these items are a breeding ground for vector-borne disease and a source for environmental pollution especially from hazardous materials such as oil, coolant, fuel, brake, and other fluids; air-conditioning gases; and heavy metals including lead, hexavalent chromium, cadmium, and mercury.
REGIONAL COURSE DEVELOPMENT
Waste management remains a crucial responsibility for all countries, despite the unprecedented challenges faced by Pacific islanders today. It is therefore vital that a sustainable capacity building program for waste management in the Pacific is developed, based on country needs, by identifying training gaps, investing in existing courses and to develop new courses to fill any identified gaps.
