Issues of waste management have become a problem for all over the world

Issues of waste management have become a problem for all over the world. Problems with the removal of waste have been put forward throughout the history of human kind (Tsiboe &Marbell, 2004). Following the World apex on discussion on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002, the United Nations General Assembly set aside the year (2008) as the “International Year of Sanitation” to raise awareness to accelerate progress towards achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). International organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) also to realize this goal, waste management which constitutes vital aspect in household sanitation arrangement, remains an immediate and critical problem for the world. Inappropriate management of solid waste pollutes the environment and poses public health hazards there by affecting human development (Centre for Disease Control, 2009; Mills-Tettey, 2011).
Increase in cycle with growth in expenditure and its connection with health problems (Achankeng, 2003). For instance, per capital waste generation increased nearly three-folds over In Africa, waste generating and its removal both at household and manufacturing continue and the last two decades on the continent, reaching a higher level compared to developed countries (UNEP, 2009) Up till now, two-thirds of the solid waste generated is not collected (Da Zhu et al., 2008). Such inadequate waste collection and removal practices create problems on the environment as well as human health and as a result economic and other interest’s victims. Even the collected waste ends up in an uncontrolled dump and any open space area sites or burnt Achankeng, 2003 as cited in Abagale, Mensah ; Agyeman-Osei, (2012)
