The rapid urbanization and economic development taking place in the Asia-Pacific region is leading to increased solid waste generation. Waste generated in the region in 2012 exceeded 1.3 million tonnes/ day and the World Bank forecasts this figure to surge to 3 million tonnes/ day in 2025.

Solid waste management is often the single largest budgetary expenditure for local governments in developing countries, which spend an average of 20 to 50 percent of their budget to collect and dispose of waste.
