The training will include virtual and physical training sessions for 11 businesses.  It will integrate international best practices in field operations and address real life challenges that businesses face in offering their recycling services, according to a statement from USAID.

Training topics include industry analysis and evaluation, marketing and sales, business modeling, process mapping and operations, quality assurance and quality control, financial knowledge and literacy, and practical skills, such as solid waste management characterization, and sorting techniques.

The training will ultimately be delivered to a total of 120 businesses.

The project works closely with private recycling firms, the commercial sector, the Ministry of Environment, and the Greater Amman Municipality to increase business competitiveness by strengthening market linkages and improve the business environment.

By transforming a largely informal network of recycling services into a competitive recycling industry, the project will contribute to sustainable solid waste management in Amman.
