Tunisia plans to construct a waste sorting/treatment center

The Ministry of Local Affairs and the Environment has recently launched a call for applications for the construction of a waste sorting/treatment center in Tunisia in a bid to improve household waste management as the North African country’s population keeps on growing.

According to the Word bank, back in 2019, the country had a population of about 11.6 million which is expected to increase to more than 11.9 million by the end of this year (2021).

In a statement, the Department of the Environment specified that this action is part of the implementation of its 2021 budget, stressing that it will ensure the financing of municipal projects that will be selected, and this, within the limit of the envelope allocated for this purpose.

It also noted that these projects, aimed at developing the waste management system, can be carried out only by municipalities or in collaboration with a local authority.
