This paper describes a case study that evaluated the level of recycling operations in Botswana. Recycling operations are now recommended as effective waste management strategies for reducing the amount of municipal solid waste disposed at landfill. In assesing the level of recycling operations in Botswana, two companies which are effectively involved in the recycling operation were selected as the focus of the evaluation process. Then data from the two companies is complemented by the data collected from Gaborone landfill site. Finally the role of non-governmental organisations particularly environmental watch Botswana (somarelang Tikologo) is discussed.
