Abstract

Many communities in Honduras do not have organized public solid waste collection and disposal services. This study addressed waste management in two Garífuna communities on the north coast. Their people use a variety of management and disposal strategies. The different pathways for the solid waste depend on the nature of the refuse (harmless, dangerous, or reusable) and which environment is deemed appropriate. A. found household-level waste management practices to be logical and effective. - (SLD)
