Abstract

Like in many developing cities a rapid population growth and high rural-urban migration poses many environmental challenges in our community.. One of these is dry waste management. In adequate dry waste management has resulted in the accumulation of waste on open lands, in drains and in the living area of many people, causing a nuisance and foul-smelling pools, environmental pollution through leaches from piles (water and soil pollution) and burning of waste (air pollution), clogging of drains, and the possible spread of diseases. Unattended piles of waste are a breeding place for insects and rats. This situation is believed to result in poor environmental conditions and an ever-present risk of epidemics, which in turn present a formidable threat to health and productivity. There is thus a need for improved waste management.
