Waste Disposal and Pollution Management in Urban Areas is a well-researched topic, it can be used as a guide or framework for your Academic Research.


Problem statement: Both wastes and crude disposal techniques have created subtle and yet serious environmental pollution havoc in many developing countries. This has lead to the degradation of abiotic and biotic components of these nations’ ecological systems. Poor industrial
waste disposal systems as well as the indiscriminate and inappropriate domestic litter disposal habit have been identified and proved to be basic features in rural settlements, semi-urban areas, and urban
centers of the developing world. These have seriously contributed to environmental pollution and ecological deterioration. The major reasons for these were identified to be inadequate information and insufficient modern waste disposal facilities. Approach: This study highlighted the use of simple, yet efficient waste disposal techniques and recommends the adequate supply and optimal utilization of trashcan and rubbish drums in private and public places; the consistent and wide use of recyclable materials and recycling equipment; information flow and training of all on the use of new techniques and methods and the need for the production and/or introduction of other appropriate technology and policy to enhance the implementation and execution of proper waste management schemes that will contribute to a cleaner and safer environment in developing countries. Results: As a result, sanitary
landfills were developed to replace the practice of open dumping and to reduce the reliance on waste incineration. Conclusion: In light of this review research, I recommend that there should be private participation in managing wastes in the developing nation. Since the largest percentage of wastes in developing countries is mainly organic, composting of wastes should be encouraged.


Solid and fluid (liquid and gas) wastes and their
disposal methods have gradually become an added treat
to the environment of developing countries as they
progressively move towards industrialization. The rapid
rural-urban shift and increased population of many
African, Asian, and South American countries have also
intensified and contributed their quota to the pollution
hazards on and in the environment. Inadequate
information and insufficient resources such as
technology finance, facility and policy execution
capability are limiting factors observed to hinder an
efficient method to fight and reduce environmental
pollution caused by domestic and industrial wastes.
Proper waste management and an efficient system of
solid and fluid waste disposal techniques are required in
these countries. Appropriate technologies and efficient
facilities suitable for environmental protection should
be introduced and utilized for the benefit of all in the
waste-polluted environs.
