The environment ministry of Maldives has signed contracts to build waste management centres in four islands in Noonu atoll and an incinerator shed in Raa atoll Vandhoo. According to the ministry, the contracts were signed with Wee Hour Investment Pvt Ltd and Saruh Pvt Ltd. Wee Hour Investment was contracted to build the incinerator shed at an estimated cost of $160,000 and a waste management centre in Noonu Magoodhoo at a cost of Rs.38128.

Saruh was contracted to construct waste management centres in Noonu Lhohi, Maalhendhoo, and Fodhoo at a cost of $38572, $52027, and $35117 respectively.

Last year, the ministry signed an agreement with Germany’s Michaelis GmbH and Co to establish an incineration plant at Raa Vandhoo to eliminate 40 tonnes of waste produced in all islands of Noonu, Raa, Baa and Lhaviyani Atolls. The US$2.6 million waste management project was funded by the World Bank and was expected to be functional by 2015.
