Abstract

Recycling waste brings many benefits for environment and society so that the establishment of sustainable recycling system is inevitable. This study aims to describe the situation of the recycling system in Hoi An City (HAC), through that establish sustainable recycling strategy for the future. The results show that HAC has a high potential for improving recycling. Whereby, recyclable waste accounts for three-fourths of total waste, and the rate of sorting waste is high. Besides, the proportion of recycling practice is slight high with 62% for residents, 39% for hotel sectors, and 56% for restaurants. However, the recycling system in HAC is simple with the rudimentary facility, in which informal sectors play important roles. Thus, the recycling effectiveness was low (24%), mainly papers, plastics, and metals. The concept of sustainable recycling strategy is established by the combination of the government, community, business sectors toward the balance between economic, environment and society.
