Construction and management of garbage bins along trekking trails

With the aim of building a more effective waste collection system along the Region’s trekking trails, SPCC has started to build permanent garbage bins along the trails since 2013. Each bin has segregation chambers to collect trash by categories so that these wastes will be properly treated and managed accordingly. SPCC built a total of 119 garbage bins and has been overseeing the maintenance and management of all garbage bins. A total of 109 garbage bins were built at various resting points along the trekking trails and 10 garbage bins were built at nine schools located within Khumbu Region. SPCC’s field staff and local partners continuously monitor littering of trash along the trekking trails and manage all garbage bins located along various trekking trails.
