Abstract: Cottage, small and medium scale industries in developing countries account for large share of employment and, in most cases, production. Recent growth of these classes of industries has been in response to high labour availability and low financial resources in most of these developing countries. However, the urban management program of UNCHS (Habitat), together with World Bank, UNDP, and other collaborating agencies, have pointed out the general lack of technical-know-how and adequate knowledge on waste management regarding the cottage, small and medium scale industries and their relative impact on the environment. The definition of micro (cottage), small and medium enterprises includes all types of enterprises irrespective of their legal form (such as family enterprises, sole proprietorships or cooperatives) or whether they are formal or informal enterprises to ensure inclusiveness (MTIC, 2015). A cottage industry has within 1 to 4 employees, small scale 6 to 50, medium scale 50 to 300, and large scale >300 employees.
