This paper gives examines waste management in Botswana based on government documentation and other relevant work on the subject. It explores the main achievements the country has made and highlights on some of the challenges of waste management in the country. Botswana has experienced increased waste generation due to increased population that outweighs the country’s capacity to deal with increased volumes of waste, lack of adequate financial, technical, technological, and human resources to deal with the problem. It is suggested that environmentaleducation be prioritized, national database on the volumes of wastes generated in the country be built and environmental legislation be strengthened.
