Disaster Waste Management Guidelines (DWMG) Online

Disaster Waste Management Phases

Long-Term Actions

This phase includes the implementation of the disaster waste management projects designed in the medium-term phase, as well as continued monitoring and evaluation of the disaster waste situation.

The following main actions should be considered:

  • Develop and implement a communications plan for key stakeholders to ensure the disaster waste management programme is aligned with community expectations and needs.
  • Procure or repair required waste management plant, machinery and equipment.
  • Train waste management operators if required.
  • Support the implementation of disaster waste management systems by supporting waste management operators/operatives or local authorities.
  • Hand over disaster waste management systems into a normalized and improved solid waste management system.

The output of this phase should see all disaster waste addressed either through disposal, incineration, reuse or recycling.
