dc.description.abstract Waste has become a global issue with rising population, urbanization, economic activities and consumerism. Further, this is becoming more critical due to waste generated through frequent disasters. This is evident with increased number of environmental, social, economical and health issues such as epidemics. Thus, this paper intends to critically review waste management practices, of both municipal and disaster waste to identify prevailing gaps. Lack of physical, human and financial resources, less enthusiasm among community groups and legal loopholes are identified as major gaps. Community involvement in planning, development and implementation of waste strategies, enhancing strategic level capacities, raising public awareness and establishing supportive authorities are proposed to eliminate identified gaps. en_US
