Effective management of Plastic Waste

The menace of plastic waste in the cities, particularly the national capital, Accra is indeed an eyesore. The situation is becoming very embarrassing. A casual stroll around town paints the picture better. Empty plastic bags are scattered and flying in the streets, markets and lorry stations the drains, gutters and culverts are heavily choked with left-overs of sachet water bags or what is popularly referred to as pure water.

Office and school premises have not been spared this sordid phenomenon. Evidently, the massive plastic waste around is not only an eyesore.It creates a deplorable unsanitary condition that poses a health hazard to the people, hence the outcry.

How do we then deal with the situation? More precisely, what is the efficient and effective solution to the plastic waste problem? Over the years, clean-up exercises have been carried out from time to time by various groups of people and organizations, yet no desirable results have been achieved.

It has been observed that the production and sale of sachet water has worsened the plastic waste problem in the city. The process involves the collection, disposal and recycling of waste, that is, turning waste into productive items for industrial use.

Unfortunately, recycling waste in our part of the world has not been effective. To ensure an efficient and effective waste management system, workers must be engaged to clean the streets, markets and lorry station daily.

For this to be effective, waste disposal trucks must be deployed to dispose off waste on time to prevent their accumulation, while plants and machinery are assembled for recycling instead of dumping waste on land sites in the vicinity, a practice that creates environmental pollution and a health hazard to the people.

Indeed, the open waste disposal method is very unhygienic and outmoded.

The option therefore, is modern waste management which is integrated in the scheme of metropolitan administration and given priority attention.

Ghana's waste challenges: Veep hints at plastic ban

Vice President John Dramani Mahama has indicated that a ban on the use of non-degradable plastics could be on the cards for consideration as part of measures to stem Ghana’s increasing waste management difficulties.

In brief remarks to the first ever National Environmental Sanitation Forum underway at the Accra International Conference Centre, John Mahama said the nation is drowning in plastics and it is high time a decision is taken on what to do with the menace.

The forum under the theme, 'Cleanliness is next to Godliness' is part of the Government of Ghana's Hundred Days' Sanitation and Ghana Going Green Agenda, and will rise this afternoon with a communique and a blueprint on dealing with the sanitation challenges across the country.

The Vice President told the forum that banning plastics in the country may not be the best option and expressed the hope that the situation does not come to that, but he stressed that if the country failed to come out with an effective programme to deal with the danger, then the safety of the populace would have to take precedence and a ban imposed on the use of plastic bags.

Describing the forum as one long overdue, given that the nation has been grappling with the scourge of environmental sanitation over the years, he said a blueprint from the meeting would be a long way to practically deal with the situation and depart from the yearly ritual of long talks and no action.
