Waste Management and Green jobs creation
DATE 12-13 October 2021


Managing waste properly is essential for building sustainable and livable cities, but it remains a challenge for many developing countries and cities due to large budgets of 20%-50% at the municipal level which call for integrated systems that are efficient, sustainable, and socially supported. Integrated Solid Waste Management systems focus on the proper treatment of special wastes (electronics, agricultural biomass, plastics) by involving all stakeholders.

Moreover, adoption of zero waste – a comprehensive approach to integrated waste management that prioritizes waste prevention, re-use, composting, and recycling proved to minimize environmental impacts and contribute to a just society with the potential to create green jobs in an average of ten times more jobs than landfills and incinerators (per ton of material handled); mostly to low-skilled and mid-level workers including youth and women.

Tindwa Medical & Health Services (TMHS) is a sole proprietorship based in Dar es salaam-Tanzania focusing on emergence health services covering the ground and air rescue, medical supplies, occupational health and safety services, and training. Since 2015 TMHS established the department of Waste and environmental services to support government and other stakeholders safeguarding our environment through the provision of hazardous waste management services covering onsite collection, transportation, and destruction, conducting environmental impact assessment, and consultancy services.
