A long standing PPP in Cameroon is the municipal solid waste management system. The private corporation Hysacam provides waste management services across 14 towns and cities, deploying the whole solid waste chain from collection to processing. Of its CFA20 billion revenue, 85% is state derived. Hysacam is bound by performance contracts set by the urban community regarding collection and cleaning timings within each vicinity.
