Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
In Monteverde, Costa Rica, solid waste management (SWM) suffered from low recycling and organics recovery rates, causing environmental problems, and non-recovered waste disposal was costly. To help ASADA address these problems, we developed a conceptual solid waste transfer center (SWTC) design for Monteverde and made SWM system recommendations. Using observations, interviews, surveys, and archival data we identified solid waste recovery rates and suggested potential solutions, to improve the SWM system, that were effectively incorporated in a SWTC.
