Provision of Solid Waste Management Services in Deir ez-Zor – Phase II

Deir ez-Zor Governorate suffered extensive destruction as a result of the conflict and during the liberation from Daesh. There was a need for immediate action to carry out solid waste management services to collect the rubble of construction materials scattered around heavily inhabited areas in the Governorate. The SRTF, in collaboration with an NGO successfully implemented and completed “Provision of Solid Waste Management Services in Deir ez-Zor - Phase I” and in light of the successful implementation and positive impact of Phase I,  a second Phase worth of around EUR 2.7 million was designed to carry out solid waste clearance and debris removal activities from 90 sites in 21 towns and villages on the eastern bank of Euphrates river in Deir ez-Zor Governate.

Phase II of “Provision of Solid Waste Management Services in Deir ez-Zor” will procure and supply needed solid waste management items and services through the following activities:

  1. Debris removal in Eastern region of Deir ez-Zor, where 90 buildings and spaces considered safe to access and clear were identified including 65 schools, ten water towers, five hospitals & health clinics and ten other public buildings. Another ten structures were identified as part of a contingency plan list and in case any of the primary structures are not feasible for clearance operations due to unforeseen circumstances.
  2. Solid waste management and dumpsite rehabilitation, where nine villages were identified in need of solid waste management and dumpsite rehabilitation activities. Work will ensure the proper collection of waste from open spaces and streets by well-maintained waste collectors and will provide waste containers where needed.
  3. Cash-for-Work (CfW) Programme opportunities; where 136 labourers and 36 trucks will be engaged in waste collecting activities from neighborhood containers and bins and transfer them to the rehabilitated dumpsites to ensure regular and proper removal of the collected waste.

It is estimated that debris clearance works will impact the lives of around 36,400 students attending 65 schools, and around 381,197 residents of nine towns will directly benefit from the solid waste collection and safe disposal. Additionally, 321 households will benefit from the (CfW) Programme offered as part of this whole intervention.
