ABSTRACT

The study was on the assessment of the problems of refuse collection in Campus 1, IMT Enugu North Local government area of Enugu state. The major problem of refuse collection is that; the stinking small and blackish liquid effluent emanating from the heaps of refuse especially during the rainy season which constitutes environmental hazards that bring about the loss of dignity and the aesthetic values of our surroundings.

The purpose of the study was to identify the refuse collection machinery cost applicable in resolving the problems of refuse collection
in Campus 1. From the aim of the study, the objectives were; to determine the level of public awareness of poor refuse collection in Campus 1, to examine the management strategies being adopted in refuse collection by the institution as well ENSEPA. In pursuit of the objectives, survey research was carried out in the area and the population used for the study was obtained from IMT campus 1 staff, which has the population of both lecturers, junior and senior staff at 1029.

A sample size of 288 was determined using Taro Yamane (1964) statistical
formula. Data were collected using questionnaires and interviews. Findings of the study indicate that refuse collection has an effect on the levies of the staff and people living on campus 1; The study also found that dumping of refuse along the road and street is not the best technique but to dispose it at the incineration, composition, sanitary landfill and open dump. Also, the management strategies being adopted in the refuse collection by institutions and ENSEPA were found to be campaign poor refuse disposal, effective provision of staff, and government subvention.

The study concludes that the federal government should, therefore play
a major role in policy implementation in the planning process is the most effective in assessing the problems of refuse collection cases. However, the study recommends that the recycling of refuse should be adopted to recover as many materials as possible where refuse can not be prevented, the aim being to reduce their overall environmental impact, such materials many include polythene bags, sewage refuse, etc. Another recommendation by the study is that, there is a need for cooperation at all levels of government in response to growing public concern about safe transportation of dangerous hazardous refuse
as well as tracking hazardous refuses to its ultimate disposal. The study made a contribution to existing literature.
