The hazards posed by the dumping of untreated capital and industrial waste are even greater, with the release of pathogens and toxic compounds posing a grave threat not just to human life but also to plants and animals. Garbage dumped in the countryside is not simply an eyesore; entire landscapes are ruined and unique habitats for flora and fauna are lost. All of these problems are common in Nausea, where vast quantities of solid waste remain uncollected in the streets, along major roads, in empty plots of land, down hill slopes and in illegal dumps.
There are many challenges facing the effective disposal of solid waste in the Nausea. Budget constraints are a chronic issue. Nearly 87% of the solid waste budget in Nausea goes to pay salaries, maintain dilapidated vehicles and provision of safety materials leaving scarce resources to improve or expand services. As a result, the garbage collection infrastructure is crumbling and local authority workers have not been issued any new equipment since 2008.
Collection vehicles currently in use are too sophisticated to run and maintain, thus garbage in metropolis accumulates. The system is so overburdened that even if collection across the town were to operate at full capacity, an estimated 4 tones of garbage would remain uncollected daily. Garbage collection services re irregular in some parts of the town and non-existent in others. In Insular G. R. A, Downside, Nonunion and some part of Gouge are covered while Backup, Idem-Ann., Pop, Deed-Ball etc are hardly paid attention to.
Contributing also to the problem of waste disposal in Nausea town is the attitude of the populace who has continually dumped refuse indiscriminately on the roads, in the streets, into drainages and in any open space defying usage of specified areas meant for refuse collection. Even when refuse is dumped in marked collection containers, it is usually not properly identified, separated and bagged in waste cellophane. This flagrant display of misbehaver could be linked to lack or low level of education by the local authority, absence of properly marked areas and refuse containers and inability of enforcing laws where it exists.
This is compounded by the habits and attitudes of communities, where it is common practice to throw waste into the street, in open drains, on empty plots of land, or to simply burn it in the open. But the problem is not only simply one of behavior, institutional and financial constraints. As in other parts of the country, the lifestyle and consumption patterns of Nausea residents have changed dramatically in scent years. More goods made of non-biodegradable materials are now commonly in use, nitrous among relatively prosperous groups but in middle- and low-income households as well.
Plastic bags and bottles, disposable diapers, electronic equipment and packaging materials not only increase the volume of waste produced but also alter its composition, making disposal more difficult. This project shall be conducted in Nausea town in Nausea local government area of Enough state. Nausea happen to be one of the local governments in the state and she houses the foremost Nigerian University which is a pride of the entry and should be seen as centre of excellence both in education and deeds.
A situation where Nausea is seen as a city of filth, decadence and ignorance will not augur well to the perception of an average visitor. My interaction with people of the Nausea town and its suburb showed ignorance and lack of proper understanding of waste identification, categorization, separation, waste/refuse disposal methods as the contributing factors to indiscriminate dumping of refuse thus necessitating this proposal for proper enlightenment and education Of the people Of the town.
