The Majuro Atoll Waste Company (MAWC), owned by the national government and the Majuro Atoll Local Government, is responsible for solid waste collection, landfill management, and recycling in Majuro. MAWC provides weekly collection services to around 80% of households in Majuro. The remaining houses are responsible for transporting their wastes to Majuro’s dumpsite. In outer islands, rubbish collection services are poor, ad-hoc, or completely absent. Many houses without collection services have instead created backyard pits. MAWC administers a Container Deposit system, collecting aluminum cans, PET bottles, and glass bottles.
