"The development will responsibly address the challenge of Ho Chi Minh City´s increasing amount of solid waste that is a by-product of the City´s growing economy. Our project will increase recycling, help to save the environment and provide many new jobs for local residents. As a Vietnamese American, I am pleased and proud to bring such a beneficial solution to my homeland."

Da Phuoc Integrated Waste Management Facility

CWS is constructing and will operate the first privately-owned integrated waste management facility in Vietnam. This development in Ho Chi Minh City will cover 128 hectares (approximately 320 acres) and was one of four American business initiatives referenced by Vietnam’s Prime Minister during his last visit to the United States.

With its state of the art, environmentally-protective design, the Da Phuoc Integrated Waste Management Facility  will be a model for the country. The project features a solid waste landfill built according to US standards, a materials recovery facility (MRF) and a composting operation.

The landfill will take in a minimum of 3000 tons per day, the MRF will be capable of recovering at least 500 tons of recyclables per day and the composting operation will handle up to an additional 1000 tons per day of material that would otherwise be sent to the landfill. The total project cost is over $400 million, including $107 million in capital costs.
