Introduction

Greater attention has been paid in the last two years by the Obiano Administration towards achieving a cleaner environment. Conscious of the fact that Anambra State is a densely populated commercial hub where great amounts of industrial trash, scrap metals, out-door litter, medical and solid waste abound, the state government has within the period of review created a long term functional strategy to manage, recycle, evacuate and maintain a viable integrated solid waste management system that will effectively check death-prone environmental hazards.
