Abstract

The project issued a plan to manage waste in the Qom community of Cerrito, Paraguay. The documentation for and recommendations in the plan were created with the use of semi-structured interviews, community educational presentations, field observations, and a community clean up event. The plan will be used by the Fundacion Paraguaya to assist in its poverty elimination efforts. The plan recommends revisiting community motivation sources, continuing education sessions that discuss the sorting of trash, scheduling consistent trash pickup, ensuring the support of community leaders, and promoting clean public spaces.
