Waste Management

In Nigeria, a significant portion of the waste generated is often improperly managed or disposed of, resulting in environmental pollution and health-related concerns. As of 2021, recycling rates in Nigeria, including Lagos, remain relatively low, with a substantial quantity of recyclable materials finding their way into landfills or open dumps. Reports indicate that Lagos alone generates an estimated 13,000 metric tonnes of waste daily, while the entire country generates approximately 32 million tonnes of solid waste annually. Despite efforts by both the government, certain private sectors, and a handful of individuals to implement effective waste management practices, recycling, and the reduction of single-use plastics, these initiatives have made limited progress towards achieving a sustainable future.
