FLASH MANAGEMENT DIAGNOSIS OF THE SOLID WASTE OF OUAGADOUGOU’S TOWN The energy balance of Burkina Faso clearly shows the preponderance of traditional energies on other energy sources. Indeed, traditional energies account for 90% of the energy balance compared with 8% for hydrocarbons and 2% for electricity. Energy wood in particular is the main source of energy for 97% of Burkina Faso. In view of the high cost of modern energies (kerosene gas, electricity), the use of wood as a domestic fuel by the majority of the population already preserves the country's deficit trade balance. In addition, the commercial timber sector provides income to nearly 40,000 people and most of these people are among the poorest. On the environmental front, the constant increase in demand leads to overexploitation of forest ecosystems in most of the country. To this overexploitation is added the deforestation at the annual rate of 170 000 ha due mainly to agricultural clearing (Report on the State of the Environment in Burkina). Fuel sticks are an alternative solution for the supply of energy in Burkina Faso, notably for its substitution for firewood and charcoal. In the implementation of the Waste Management Master Plan (W.M.M.P), the city of Ouagadougou encounters a number of difficulties / constraints. These include: • From the incivism of certain inhabitants who remained refractory to the W.M.C, • Proliferation and replenishment of uncontrolled landfills (wild dumps), • The persistence of the informal sector (non-contracting associations in the collection zones following the 2004 call for tenders) in the collection areas, • The absence of appropriate waste bins in households and other solid waste producers, • The inadequacy of garbage bins in collection centers, • The age of the car fleet, • Poor access to certain collection centers, • The poor internal organization of the EIG / SMEs involved in the collection of waste, • A lack of knowledge of the texts governing solid waste management in the city of Ouagadougou, • Small quantities of Special and Biomedical Industrial Wastes transferred to the W.T.R.C by the industrial unit promoters.
