There are many challenges to disposing of the waste as facilities and waste diversity vary from country to country; therefore, we implement solutions, in collaboration with partners and governments, according to the current and future waste management capacities of each deployment location. Meanwhile, we continue to investigate solutions to properly treat and dispose of the collected plastic waste in ways that are environmentally sound, affordable, and compliant with local regulations. Recycling of plastic is preferred, and technical feasibility is being assessed.
Interceptors in operation are helping us to further improve how we approach the disposal of collected waste while also encouraging local stakeholders to address overall waste management practices and infrastructure.
