There is large variability in the management of waste in Timor-Leste. The Dili District Administration manages the Tibar Dump, which is the only controlled landfill in Timor-Leste. The Dili District Administration contracts private companies to assist with rubbish collection in Dili. Despite this, many households and businesses do not dispose of waste properly and are engaged in illegal dumping in rivers or drains and burning. There are private recycling companies in Dili that bale and export cardboard, paper, and scrap metal.
