dc.description.abstractAn efficient and comprehensive waste collection system is essential to protect the health of the population. The entire waste management plan for a city or region depends on the standard of the collection service. A modern well-managed waste collection and transport system not only protects the general public from disease but is also safe and hygienic for everyone working in, or in connection with, the system. This includes waste generators; collection, transport, and treatment personnel; children and scavengers; and indirectly all inhabitants of the city. Waste collection costs can account for as much as half, or even more of the total waste management budget. Therefore good management is beneficial in economic terms as well as in environmental and health termsen
