CHAPTER ONE

  • BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The aggregate of health impact of poor waste management in developing countries remains a major issue of public health concern that demands urgent intervention by both governmental and non-governmental agencies with focus on health education designed at reducing environmental menace associated with waste management practices (Oghenekohwo and Akporehwe, 2015).A report by the National Orientation Agency (2011) indicates that Nigerian cities and towns are fast becoming what could be termed as “modern ghettos” because of the existence of heaps of refuse littering the streets. Cities and towns like Ibadan, Ijebu, Ota, Benin-City, Asaba, Lagos, Onitsha, Yenagoa and even in some parts of the Nation’s Federal Capital, Abuja is no exception. Waste management has emerged as one of the greatest challenges facing environmental protection agencies in Nigeria. The volume of solid waste generated continues to increase at a faster rate than the ability of the agencies to improve on the financial and technical resources needed to parallel its’ management in Nigeria cities as characterized by inefficient collection methods, insufficient coverage of the collection points and system and improper disposal of waste irrespective of the types (Agunwamb, Egbuniwe, and Ogwueleka, 2003).

Most developing countries, Nigeria inclusive, have solid waste management problems that are different from those found in industrialized countries in terms of composition, density, political will and economic framework aimed at financing itsmanagement. Besides, the wastes are heavier, wetter and more corrosive in developing cities than developed cities (Aigbokhavbo 2000; Akinwale, 2005).As at present, most urban communities are grappling with the forces of climate change that have engendered heavy rain falls, massive erosion, flooding among other environmental damaging consequences. It is also evident that communities are greatly overwhelmed by the attendant effects of health related issues as a result of the pollutions brought about by various waste materials that are poorly channeled and situated in communities. All these compromise the variants of community development, which Cary (1970), hypothesized in different context with environmental related issues. Accordingly, community development is always a process and will remain a process which in the view of Cary (1970), is about developing the power, skills, knowledge and experience of people as individuals and in groups, thus, enabling them to undertake initiatives of their own to combat social, economic, political and “environmental problems”, thereby enabling them to fully participate in a truly democratic process. In this context, the writer specified environmental problems, part of which is waste management. Therefore, a holistic community development process must take a lead in countering the destruction of the natural environment on which all depend.

Meanwhile, it has been underscored by Oghenekohwo (2012) that community development seeks to enable individuals and communities to grow and change according to their own needs and priorities, and at their own pace, provided this does not oppress other groups and communities, or damages the environment. Thus, the process of community development is associated with ensuring healthy environment that is devoid of pollution; (air; water, earth etc.), but enhances community health practices as a major concern in waste management. Therefore, it is within the expectation of promoting community health that the variants of waste management draws on community development in practice.

  • STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The campaign against environmental decay is therefore seen as a collective responsibility of both the public and private sector. Against this backdrop, the various stakeholders needed to be more informed about the need for proper environmental care. This campaign becomes eminent as the morbidity and mortality that results from such indiscriminate waste management practices continues to hunt the people against the backdrop of development. (National Orientation Agency, 2011).Urban solid waste management incorporates several interrelated aspects, which needs complete cooperation and collaboration of the community for efficient delivery. It comprises aspects of waste generation, waste composition, collection, recycling (if any), pretreatment and treatment, and finally disposal (Periathamby, 2011). These management aspects thus require input from legal, economic, governmental, political, administrative, and environmental actors. Thus, it requires the involvement of multi-professional drivers such as community change agents among others.

  • RESEARCH QUESTION

The pertinent questions to this research work are:

  1. How has the residents in high court area been disposing their refuse?
  2. Is the method of refuse disposal the best way to dispose waste?
  3. Has the local government looked into the management of Kurata dumpsite?
  4. What is the health implication of Kurata dumpsite on the residents in this environment?

1.4       AIMS AND OBJECTIVE OF STUDY

The aim of this studies is to critically study about the management of Kurata public dump sites and its effect on the residents in the environment. The objectives are:

  1. To examine how the residents in high court area have been disposing their refuse.
  2. To ascertain if the method of refuse disposal used by the residents is the best way to dispose waste.
  3. To ascertain ifthe local government has looked into the management of Kurata dumpsite.
  4. To study the health implication of Kurata dumpsite on the residents in this environment.

1.5     RESEARCH HYPOTHES

The dumpsite at Kurata, off High court road, Ota does not have any health implication on the residents of its environs.

The dumpsite at Kurata, off High court road, Ota does not have any health implication on the residents of its environs.

1.6    SCOPE OF THE STUDY

The idea of the research work is to examine the management of public dumpsite at Kurata, High court road, Ota, Ogun state on the residents in its environs.

Nigerian cities generate solid waste at an alarming rate such that in most cases, the volume of waste generated is often more than what the city system could absorb or handle. The characteristics of their problems range from inadequate housing, lack of potable water leading to un- sanitary neighborhoods. Therefore, the health impacts of the latter problem cannot be far-fetched as the incidence of typhoid, malaria fever etc. attacks among urban residents can be attributed largely to the deterioration of their immediate environment. Furthermore, due to rapid urbanization, the provision of infrastructural facilities is not enough to serve the growing population. In effect, most of the available services are often overstretched and this has posed a serious problem to urban inhabitants. In fact the volume of waste, tend to grow with increasing population, production and consumption in Nigeria.

1.7     SIGNIFICANCE   OF   THE    STUDY

This work shall be of great benefit to the residents of this area and the nation as well. The study shall critically look into the best way to dispose refuse for the residents of Kurata and also suggest how the public dumpsite can be managed.The result of the research shall also be useful to the management of other dumpsites in the nation.Other researchers will find the work useful as it is a base for future research work.

Finally it will also contribute positively to the field of knowledge, especially the field which this research is directed.

1.8   LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

The challenge of finance for the general research work will be a challenge during the course of study. Correspondents also might not be able to complete or willing to submit the questionnaires given to them.

However, it is believed that these constraints will be worked on by making the best use of the available materials and spending more than the necessary time in the research work. Therefore, it is strongly believed that despite these constraint, its effect on this research report will be minimal, thus, making the objective and significance of the study achievable.

1.9     DEFINITION OF TERMS                                                                      

Public dumpsite: this is also called alandfill site. It is a site for the disposal of wastematerials by burial. It is the oldest form of waste treatment (although the burial part is modern; historically, refuse was just left in piles or thrown into pits).

Residents:this isa person who lives somewhere permanently or on a long-term basis.

Pollution:is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Pollutioncan take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light

Health risk:Degree of likelihood that one or more exposures to a hazardous substance may have damaged or will damage the health of the exposed person(s).
