Solid Wastes Management in Uyo Metropolis

ABSTRACT

Huge volumes of commingled wastes are generated in various parts of Uyo metropolis and disposed off at different locations. The main aim of this research is to quantify wastes generated and evaluate handling and disposal methods with a view to recommending a “waste to wealth” programme.

Primary and secondary data were collected from literature review, personal observations, site visits, questionnaires, administrations and interviews of residents.

Results shows that a total of 350tonnes of solid wastes is deposited within an hour at the dumpsite and 5100tonnes of solid wastes may be deposited in a day.

The survey reveals that several residents in Uyo metropolis understood the need to have a clean environment and the possible challenge that might occur if the wastes were not properly disposed off.

With the emergence of tripartite programme solid waste generated in Uyo metropolis can be used to generate wealth and energy or an alternative source to generate electricity.

INTRODUCTION

Commingled wastes: The dictionary reference means, “to become blended”. In the context of waste management however commingled means the mingling or mixing of just some specific resources: dry mixed recyclable items. The waste industry refers to a ‘mixed recyclable stream’ or ‘commingled’ waste resource. This differentiates that particular type of waste from ‘general waste’. General waste is where waste, whether it is recyclable or not, is collected together.
