Federation promotes hygiene through provision of knowledge households to households and through community meetings. Hygiene and solid waste teams are trained by CCI to promotion hygiene and collecting solid waste within their settlements in partnership with authorities. Some of these groups have gained official recognition and are now able to tender for contracts from Local authorities.
In recent the federation has initiated and linked the solid waste collection with recycling to maximize the potential of garbage for producing fertilizers and other materials for getting more income to groups. This also will reduce the cost of transporting garbage to dumping sites which are usually located far/outside the city. As a starting point, Dodoma municipal has allocated 3200squire meters of free land to federation and CCI for recycling work.
