Municipal Solid Waste and Waste Management PPP Toolkits

Public private partnership toolkits are a collection of resources for policymakers and other parties interested in developing and evaluating PPP infrastructure projects. While the World Bank does not provide best practices, these toolkits provide sector-specific checklists, sample documents and other resources for creating successful partnerships.

Solid Waste Sample Bidding Documents - South Australia


Local Government Association of South Australia has developed this toolkit to help local government develop some consistency in approach and tendering of solid waste projects.  Local Government waste management is becoming increasingly complex necessitating the management of a diversity of systems. In responding to this complexity, there is a need for more comprehensive contractual arrangements with service providers. Contractual arrangements not only relate to the actual collection system, but also reporting requirements to meet statutory and funding obligations from State Government.  Toolkit includes model contracts and bidding documents.
