Waste management

image of Waste management

In recent decades, Morocco has experienced strong growth in its urban population and a proliferation of peripheral areas, with a significant increase in access to basic services (of 10 per cent from 2003 to 2011). With population growth, rapid urbanization and changing consumption patterns, production of household waste in Morocco is increasing. This has made more difficult the collection, removal and disposal of household and similar waste. These wastes are often disposed of by wild or spontaneous discharges and dumping without any treatment or control, resulting in serious consequences for public health and the environment.
