Pesticide Container Management in the Pacific - GHD Ptd Ltd
WA WINNER 2018

The poor management of used pesticide containers in the Pacific is an environmental and human health risk, due to their reuse for water storage and burning releasing dioxins. GHD was engaged by SPREP, to assist the governments of 14 pacific island countries to identify best waste management practices and assess options to put these in place.
 
The project was complex due to the need to consider sustainable changes to waste management practices within the constraints of small island countries. The project identified a preferred model and recommended it be trailed in one country, refined and expanded across the region.
