Our Mission

Commercial operations play a significant role in the waste management efforts of a solid waste authority. These operations are dedicated to managing and regulating waste generated by commercial establishments, such as businesses, offices, restaurants, and institutions. The solid waste authority works closely with the commercial sector to ensure proper waste collection and disposal practices. They may establish commercial waste collection schedules, provide guidance on waste segregation, and enforce compliance with waste management regulations. By effectively managing commercial waste, these operations help minimize environmental impact and maintain a clean and sustainable business environment.
