Nigeria and partnering companies are taking steps to reduce waste in landfills.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on the cooperation in waste reduction.

Nigeria generates more than 32 million tons of waste annually. This waste is generated from a variety of sources, including residential, commercial, and industrial sources. The vast majority of this waste is disposed of in landfills, with only a small percentage being recycled or composted. The waste generated in Nigeria poses a significant environmental and Public Health hazard. Landfills are a major source of Greenhouse gas Emissions, and they also leach harmful chemicals into the soil and water. This can contaminate local water supplies and lead to a variety of health problems for the people who live near them. The government of Nigeria has taken some steps to address the problem of waste generation, but more needs to be done.
