The case for private Haulers to manage illegal dumping in urban cities

Rising standards of living and high population densities in cities around the world are putting an increasing strain on public
services, including solid waste management. As global waste production is expected to rise by 70% by 2050 (Kaza, 2018), it
is important that city planners consider the financing, management and organisation of waste disposal in urban areas.
A lack of affordable and effective waste collection and education capacities can result in issues of illegal dumping
which can have severe economic, social and environmental impacts. Private Haulers have the potential to ease the burden of waste management on public services when managed effectively.
