The current waste collection service covers all nine islands in Tuvalu. The capital Funafuti has an advanced waste service – including organics collection and processing, a Waste Levy (with deposit) for the collection of recyclables and bulky waste, and a new recycling/transfer facility providing for the processing of household recyclables. Funafuti has a lined landfill, while outer islands utilise open dumps, managed by island councils (Kaupule). Despite current waste management efforts, there is still a prevalence of coastal litter in Tuvalu.
