UNHCR field staff and their partners should use this waste register form to keep a record of the types and quantities of waste being disposed at each landfill facility. Ideally waste management short, medium and long term strategies for different waste streams should be re-evaluated and re-organised based on the data collected from this tool.
Where required, UNHCR and WASH actors may use this template to develop a solid waste management action plan that describes a list of prioritised solid waste management activities in addition to WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and HOW they will be carried out.
This form can be used to assess the refugee landfill site for public health and environmental sanitary risk factors.
UNHCR field staff and their partners should conduct a waste composition assessment to assess the types of waste being produced and their and rates of production. Ideally the assessment should be carried out within the first three months of a displacement emergency and then at least once a year. Waste management short, medium and long term strategies for each waste stream should be revaluated and reorganised according to the findings of this assessment.
The UNHCR WASH Manual is a comprehensive and authoritative reference document for WASH interventions in refugee settings, built upon the experience of UNHCR and WASH organisations.
