Abstract


Solid waste is a significant and growing problem in many urban areas of
the Developing world. Current systems of waste management in most developing
country cities are very rudimentary at best and are grossly inefficient and effective.
Uncontrolled landfill disposal of solid waste is a pervasive problem which causes a
range of external costs, including human health hazards. This research analyzes
the solid waste management and its problems in Lagos. The research makes use of
both structured questionnaire survey to the state of solid waste management
activities as well as the challenges while published data from Lagos state waste
management Agency as well as other published documents were used to
supplement the primary data sources . It is concluded that the most fundamental
requirement is an integrated regulatory framework and supporting institutions.
Once this framework is established then the problems of waste management will be
reduced to the minimal level.
