Policies on household solid waste still display inadequacy
The amount of household solid waste (HSW) in major cities nationwide is expected to increase by 10-16 percent a year on average. However, the most common waste treatment method in Vietnam, which is mere burying, has proved its unsuitability for the modern and environmentally friendly development trend at present.
Limited state budgets for HSW treatment add to this problem as they cannot meet the high demands of the community. In the meantime, unattractive preferential policies and mechanisms for this aspect have prevented a successful mobilization of possible resources in the society.
