In first quarter of 2017, the NSWMP Hazardous Waste component started extensive discussions with the governorate of Alexandria to identify the main government entities that produce fluorescent lamps waste and the best mechanisms to collect waste lamps from these entities.  Upon the governorate proposal, two workshops were subsequently held with different directorates which are youth and sports, health, education and agriculture. The purpose of these workshops was to inform them about the pilot project and to understand the magnitude of the problem and the challenges they face in disposing of their waste lamps.
