Alleviating Poverty by Delivering Innovative and Practical Solutions

Lubumbashi -DRC Waste Management Project

Link by LOVE : Fill by HOPE



  • The waste situation in Lubumbashi is at critical level resulting in to serious public health and safety issues
  • The Government has clearly identified the issues and under the leadership Of Governor Moise Katumbi the Provincial Government is keen to lead the way in putting together a sustainable solution in The province of Katanga staring with Lubumbashi
  • In September 2008 NCL signed a contract to deliver a sustainable solution
  • The first step is a feasibility study which was completed in May 2009 leading to a pilot project followed by full scale delivery
  • The project will become a Model that can be replicated across DRC
  • In the presentation is to present the finding of the study and the way forward

There is no quick fix England took over 100 years but you have the benefit of this experience but the responsibility and ownership is will always remain that of the Government of Lubumbashi but You are not alone we are with you

the purpose of the scoping study was to
The purpose of the scoping study was to:
  • identify the current activities being undertaken within Lubumbashi;
    • describe a range of technologies that would be relevant for the area;
    • identify measures to improve the operation of the current dump sites;
  • identify the options for clinical waste management;
    • identify a range of 4 Phases that would address particular waste management issues in the area and;
  • outline a Business Plan
present arrangement
Present Arrangement
  • There are no organised global house to house or commercial collections in the area that are under the control of the City Authorities. There are a number of small operators that collect waste from residential and commercial premises.
  • The main method of waste collection is by the clearance from property and accumulations of waste from illegal or authorised dumping grounds throughout the area

There are five significant dump sites

  • Luano 1;
  • Luano 2;
  • Somika;
  • Kafubu Road;
  • Deplaine Market Trench.

Engineered Landfill

To improve environmental issues a new landfill are critical in the containment and management of the hazardous wastes and to prevent the migration of leachate and landfill gas into the environment

A large area of land (in excess of 10km2) has been allocated for mining at Lukuni, 25 km from city centre

The first cell for the pilot would create a void of 100,000 cu m

clinical waste
Clinical Waste
  • The current system is that healthcare wastes are collected with normal waste collections with no separation of infectious or dangerous materials. The collection system uses a variety of containers and, at some hospitals, clinical wastes are being burned in trenches within the hospital grounds. Other clinical wastes appear at the transit sites and dump sites
clinical waste1
Clinical Waste
  • To organise and treat the materials and ensure that correct practices are used a collection system is proposed. The Consortium would provide the appropriate containers, collect at regular frequencies from the producers, transport the wastes and incinerate the materials at properly maintained and staffed sites. Training would be undertaken for the healthcare organisations so that the hospitals and clinics separate the clinical materials from the household materials. Collections would be carried out using suitable vehicles that would provide containers and collect full ones.
there are three main collection organisations
There are three main collection organisations:
  • The Brigade D’assainissement - an operation run by three former Mayors of the City under the umbrella of the Governorate. The Brigade is not strictly a commercial operation but undertakes a “service” which is funded by the Governorate. They utilise two compaction lorries, four 7 tonne lorries, a wheeled loader and some 450 workers operating in three teams of 150. They mainly collect in the City Centre, and the communes. They also target specific key and public areas. The service is free and the collected materials are mainly taken to the dump sites.
  • USAFI - a private commercial operation that collects from household and commercial properties. They operate approximately 18 small 3 wheeler motor bicycles with a small rear body that can carry up to 150kg of waste. These vehicles were chosen to facilitate collection in areas which cannot be accessed by larger collection vehicles. They collect from premises and take the materials to the transit sites. The operation is intended to be a subscription service so that an agreed service is provided in return for fixed monthly payments.
  • Kashawe Construction - another private operator collecting from domestic and commercial properties. They operate two compaction lorries with approximate gross weights of 25 tonnes. They also collect in the City Centre, Golf, Kenya, Ruashi and Kamalondo areas. These collection arrangements, although they appear to have a potential conflict, actually address different issues regarding waste management in the area and to some extent are complimentary operations. USAFI and Kashawe provide a doorstep collection service whilst the Brigade provides a street cleaning and waste transfer operation
the key areas for improvement to the waste management system have been identified as
The key areas for improvement to the waste management system have been identified as:
  • formalising the collection system
  • closure of unofficial dumps
  • provision of clinical waste system
  • Provision of an engineered Landfill
the 4 phases are
The 4 Phases are:
  • Phase 1 - Pilot Study;
  • Phase 2 - Infrastructure Improvement;
  • Phase 3 - Development of Local Contract Arrangements;
  • Phase 4 - Introduction of City Wide Collection System
objectives of the phases
Objectives of the Phases
  • The various Phases move waste management from a disjointed system towards an integrated system under the control of the Provincial Government.
  • They take account of current practices and develop these whilst at the same time improving knowledge, skills, capacity, public understanding and facility improvements.
  • They all take account of a requirement to provide additional funding from a variety of sources, either to introduce step changes or to ensure the long term viability of schemes.
phase 1
Phase 1
  • Construction of an engineered Landfill
  • Improved collection by private operators
  • Installation of a clinical waste incinerator
  • Secure collection and disposal of clinical waste
  • Consortium would Manage the Overall System
  • Time Scale 1-2 Year
phase 2
Phase 2
  • 3 transit sites. One to serve the Northern Kampemba and the South Western Ruashi Commune areas, a second to serve the Northern part of the Lubumbashi and part of the Annexe Commune and a third to serve the Katuba and adjacent Annexe areas.
  • The private sector operators would provide a collection system and transit sites within the whole or part of a Commune with a specific Service Level Agreement that identifies particular deliverables and performance management requirements.
  • local” sites to extend the efficiency of collections.
phase 3
Phase 3
  • It would be typified by regular collections available to all households and commercial premises, a network of transit points that included transfer, composting and recycling facilities and engineered landfill site(s) with pollution abatement equipment
  • It would be operated at a higher level by the Consortium but with the delivery of specific facilities sub-contracted to various local companies that would supply services to the Consortium under agreed Contracts or Service Level Agreements..
  • Phase 3 would require an acceptable level of legislation and enforcement to ensure that the vast majority of the activities were soundly based, financially based and sustainable.
phase 4
Phase 4
  • In Phase 4 the Provincial Government would be responsible for the provision of a comprehensive waste management system throughout the Lubumbashi area.
  • In all these situations the authority may elect to undertake the operations directly themselves or can contract out the operation to the private sector.
  • A substantial amount of knowledge would have been gained in reaching the organised state and a Waste Strategy would be in place with key targets. The Strategy would also take account of other national issues such as energy, water treatment and carbon so that waste management becomes integrated into the national infrastructure.
  • To replicate this type of collection service will need a relatively sophisticated legislative framework
  • It would be operated at a higher level by the Consortium but with the delivery of specific facilities sub-contracted to various local companies that would supply services to the Consortium under agreed Contracts or Service Level Agreements..
