Solid Waste Management
|Publisher:||University of North Bengal|
|Abstract:||One of the most pervasive environmental threats in the world is solid waste, which includes trash, refuse, garbage, and rubbish from residential and business operations. The threat is present in many nations, including Nigeria. Despite the existence of the necessary legal frameworks (rules and institutions), the inefficiency for the control and management of solid waste in Nigeria is very frightening. This article looks at the legislative frameworks for solid waste in South Africa, the United Kingdom, and Nigeria in an effort to learn from them for Nigeria. To obtain data for a comparative comparison, the doctrinal approach of legal research was used. The analysis found that in order to manage and control the threat in accordance with the standard for best practices around the world, the existing legislative frameworks is insufficient. However, this paper came to the conclusion that the problem is not solely due to the inadequate legal framework; it is also due to the general lack of concern individuals have for solid waste management and control, which makes it impossible to achieve success despite significant effort. Lessons were drawn for a better control and management of solid waste in Nigeria as a way ahead.|
