waste management in nigeria; breakthroughs, problems
In Nigeria, waste mismanagement is a dire issue that calls for immediate attention as the hazards associated with it can be very terminal if not duly tackled or managed by the appropriate environmental authorities
It is quite common to see waste disposed improperly anywhere and at key places which gives the environment an untidy look. Improper management of waste can be detrimental to a person’s health there by causing severe illness
Industries in Nigeria generate more waste as well as households, hospitals, organizations, schools, churches and these waste materials if properly managed can be recycled and put to good use to benefit the country
In most developed countries, waste management has impacted greatly on the productivity and development of the country as such wastes generated are collected and recycled to serve another beneficial purpose for the country and its citizens
Plastic bottles, cans, and wrappers can be incinerated and used for other purposes instead of disposing of it without knowing its usefulness. I watched a televised programme where oil was generated from plastic bottles when melted and I was amazed at how from something useless, something useful was generated
Nigerians need to be enlightened through the media on the benefits of keeping a clean environment and the disadvantages involved in doing otherwise so that the amount of waste sprawled haphazardly everywhere would be reduced
It is not completely a rundown situation for waste management in Nigeria as long as the government can put in more effort to ensure that the environmental authorities do their duty more efficiently and effectively
Waste cannot be managed effectively as a result of insufficient funding by the government as the equipment needed to collect the waste is poorly provided and as such the work of the environmental authorities would not be conducted efficiently and effectively
3. The government should declare strict environmental laws and ensure that all citizens abide by them and those who don’t abide by the law should be fined so that a major step can be taken to ensure that wastes are properly managed in Nigeria
Planning is key in everything and inaccurate planning can bring unwanted results and such is the case for waste management in Nigeria as inaccurate planning is also another problem that should be considered as this can greatly affect the management of waste
Waste management in Nigeria is what is much needed to curb the littering of the streets with waste materials that ought to be properly disposed of so as to have that clean environment that poses no health threats
the green construction waste recycling production line in
Recently, the annual treatment of 1 million tons of the green construction waste recycling production line in Suzhou, China, which is provided with complete technical solutions and core construction waste treatment equipment by SANME has been put into production. After the project is put into operation, it can effectively treat the construction waste in Suzhou, help to solve the problem of construction waste recycling in Suzhou, realize the recycling, harmless and reduction of construction waste, and contribute to the local environmental protection.
The project adopts jaw crusher crushing + impact crusher + impact crusher crushing and screening process, fully closed production workshop, which can effectively reduce noise, dust and green environmental protection.
The maximum feeding particle size of the project is 600mm, and the discharging particle size is divided into 0-5mm, 5-10mm, 10-20mm and 20-31.5mm. The high-quality recycled raw materials obtained from the project are used to produce recycled concrete, recycled brick and recycled water stabilized materials.
