While COVID-19 is primarily a global health emergency, its impacts have been unprecedented on a wide spectrum of sectors. One of the most pronounced challenges to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis is waste management. The impact of both the health crisis and lockdown conditions has impacted waste management, from infectious and medical waste management to breakdowns in municipal waste systems, which has had both environmental and human health implications.

In many countries, tens of thousands of people are involved in waste picking activities and the market for recycled goods has crashed. The COVID-19 situation has impacted livelihoods of waste pickers and increased stigma of their jobs. Therefore, this sector will also need special attention.
