Waste management is a challenge for the Solomon Islands, primarily due to the geographic dispersal of the population. Waste collection services are currently limited to accessible areas within Honiara and in a few provincial centres6. Urban area waste collection services less than 45% of household waste generated. In rural areas, rubbish collection services are poor, ad hoc, or completely absent. As a result, all waste generated in rural areas is managed through burning, burying, and dumping -either on land or in nearby waterways.
