Lagos to close landfill sites

By Okwy Iroegbu-Chikezie



The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has concluded plans to decommission its landfill sites at Olusosun and Solous due to urban encroachment and increased human activities in the areas.

The hint was given by the Managing Director of the agency Dr Muyiwa Gbadegesin, who noted that the move became necessary as both sites drew close to the end of their life spans.



He said, ‘The process of winding down activities at those landfill sites has commenced. There was not much human activity close to the sites at inception but fast-paced development in the state has seen houses built around them’.

Speaking further, he said, ‘The government is opening a new chapter in modern waste management for the state, through a number of comprehensive short and long-term strategies that could include, reactivation of Kesse Landfill project at Badagry; construction of additional material recovery facilities and transfer loading stations around the metropolis, as well as building community recycling centres in all the local councils and development areas of the state’.

The LAWMA boss maintained that immediate measures would be taken to mitigate the impact of the closure, but the long-term objective of government was ‘a State where no landfill sites are required but only waste management facilities, waste to energy and incineration plants’.

He further revealed that plans were on to establish 5 Mega Watts waste to energy plants at Solous 3, Olusosun and Epe landfills, to tap the energy potentials available there, while Olusosun would eventually be transformed into a waste treatment centre.

Gbadegesin reiterated the agency’s commitment to promoting waste recycling and best practice in waste manage
