Waste collection is provided to approximately 77% of the population in Palau, and each state is responsible for its own waste management services. Koror state provides weekly collection to 100% of its residents, with the collected materials managed at the M-Dock landfill. Green waste is collected upon request. Outer island communities operate under a self-haul arrangement. Forty-two segregation facilities have been established in communities to accept mixed recyclables and residual waste. Palau implemented a Container Deposit Legislation on aluminum and steel cans, plastic, and glass bottles in 2011. This program records an 87.3% recycling rate.
