||Safe and efficient waste collection systems are the foundation for recycling and managing waste and protecting our environment. Waste collectors contribute to cleaning our environment through their collection work day-by-day. However, waste collectors often face many risks associated with their collection work such as handling heavy and dangerous waste, traffic accidents, or hot working environment. This training manual aims to improve the safety, health and efficiency of waste collection work. It uses many illustrations of good examples that waste collectors and managers can put to immediate use, based on the ILO's participatory training approaches. It promotes practical collaborative actions between waste collectors and the community for establishing safety and efficient waste collection systems.
