This Pacific Country/Territory Profile in the solid waste and recycling sector was published in 2018 as part of a compendium of fifteen individual country profiles that seek to identify and quantify the opportunity to improve the resource recovery of fifteen common commodities1 present in the solid waste stream. The research study was commissioned by PRIF in 2017 – the ‘Regional Resource Circulation and Recycling Network’ – to address the challenges faced in the Pacific region in providing sustainable management systems for an increasing and diversifying range of waste materials, driven mainly by changing urbanization patterns, globalized markets, wealth redistribution and the resultant changing lifestyles.
