Municipal garbage management is a critical issue in many municipalities in Uganda. In Bushenyi-Ishaka municipality in particular, Garbage is collected from the source from where it is sorted, it is carried on municipal trucks to the dumping site where it is composted into manure that is used in gardens to better food production. The manure is sold at a cost and because of this, the municipality is gradually improving its own revenue. The challenges however are constant break down of trucks and public reluctance in garbage management
