APPRAISAL OF E-WASTE MANAGEMENT ACTIVITIES IN ONITSHA MAIN MARKET: towards environmental planning and management.



ABSTARCT



Urban
waste management, collection and disposal have always been a universal problem.
Extant literatures have documented the importance of solid waste management to
the urban environment. Yet the performance of the authorities charged with the
responsibility of solid waste management in this respect leaves much to be
desired. Therefore, this research study appraises e-waste management activities
with respect to Onitcha main market, Anambra state. To achieve the primary aim
of this study, the study used simple random technique to randomly distribute one
hundred and twenty (120) questionnaires each to industry (therefore examined
the possibilities of e-waste management in the main market of Onitsha
metropolis of Anambra state. Data were analyzed using simple percentage and
mean, under the modified four point likert scale. Despite the many reasons to
support the e-waste management in the studied area, e-waste is limited due to:
(1) insufficient collection (2) no Federal legislation or policy mandating
e-waste recycling (3) lack of management and recovery technologies and (4)
illegal importation of hazardous e-waste to the country where recycling
processes pose serious risks to human and environmental health. In order to
increase the e-waste management rate in the Nigeria, Federal regulation is
needed in order to provide a cohesive approach to e-waste control. Federal
regulation will provide the necessary structure and framework by setting
mandatory recycling targets and establishing the implementation of financing
and enforcement mechanisms for e-waste collection and recycling
