It said the generation and management of waste remained an important factor in building sustainable and livable cities and towns across the country.

It said that efficient waste management impacts on public health, the economy and social wellbeing of the people, adding that Nigeria’s waste generation is 25 million per ton per year out of which urban waste per day is 40,959 tons. 

Urban waste is expected to grow by 147 % (101,307) tons per day in 2025, it said.
