Jordan: Sustainable waste management in Sahab municipality

In Jordan, only 10% of municipal solid waste is recovered, while the majority ends up at landfills. Supporting waste management actors’ capacities is essential to minimise environmental pollution and foster circular approaches.

Through this project (November 2019-November 2021), funded by SYCTOM, ACTED aims to reduce the adverse impact of solid waste on the environment and support the economic development of Sahab Municipality, near Amman, by expanding the existing municipal sorting centre. Moreover, ACTED also disseminated knowledge on sustainable waste management practices in community spaces and schools around Sahab.

To expand the sorting centre, ACTED has opted for a prefabricated modular construction for more flexibility as well as to ensure the sustainability of the infrastructure. In addition, ACTED ensured daily supervision of the construction works through strong coordination and management of the hired contractor.

Here ACTED-hired workers are also completing the steel structure of the sorting facility’s extension.
