Eight million tons of plastic waste are discarded into the word’s ocean annually- the equivalent of dumping an entire garage struck of plastic into the ocean every minute. While the challenge of ocean plastics is global, waste management systems are typically local.

USAID’s Municipal Waste Recycling Program is currently working in four of the world’s largest contributors to ocean plastic pollution: Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka.
