Abstract:   (7501 Views)
In most classic texts, solid waste management is considered to be consisting of some certain functional elements, including generation, storage, segregation, recycling, transportation and disposal. However implying, this feature does not directly incorporate or emphasize human resources that are supposed to be the center of any sustainable development. It might be due to the noticeable fact of human significant function. Considering its early stage in our country, the main focus of solid waste management has been being mostly on the technical elements therefore, the human resources have not convincingly been noticed as they deserve. This critique aimed to draw municipality managers’ attention to wellbeing, safety and welfare of their workforce. This group of workers who are amongst the most underprivileged and vulnerable workers has exposure to many risk factors that could endanger their health.
