Business Model Development of Infrastructure for Faecal Sludge Management in Mymensigh City Corporation


Mymensingh, one of the largest cities in Bangladesh with an area of 21.73 square kilometers and the total number of households is 83,682 with a population of 456,569. The city has no existing sewerage network and the population depends overwhelmingly on manual emptying services for sludge management which is inadequate, unhealthy and also damaging to the environment. Mymensingh City Corporation (MCC) is also providing less mechanical emptying services to the city dwellers with different tariffs. There is no fixed rate for manual and mechanical emptying as it depends on the negotiation with the emptiers and customers. Currently, there are mainly two types of emptying systems being practiced; municipality/city authority-led emptying services; informal emptying services managed by independent emptiers.
