Manure and garbage management: waste storage system.

The waste storage system to be provided by the Project will include a communal store with provision for holding recyclable household waste (separated by the householder with bins provided by the Project), livestock waste destined for composting and spreading on farmland as organic manure. Where there is a need, either because the householders wish to retain the livestock waste as manure or because investments are needed at the household level to reduce effluent discharge, the project could provide funds for storage bunkers at the household level. At present, the project cost tables provide the construction of one or two communal stores with capacity for holding up to 3,000 tons of livestock waste in each commune, together with about 75 household storage bunkers. The likely size of communal stores and number of household bunkers will be confirmed during the evaluation of needs in the first six communes.
