Recycling is only possible if recyclable materials can compete with virgin material in terms of quality and price amlon group. Price of recycled or refined products depends on the cost of collecting materials. Sorting is part of the collection process, which affects quality. In this country, wastes are usually not collected in a cost-effective or environmentally friendly way. An investigation has shown that the cost of recycling solid wastes is largely attributed to waste collection and separation into different components. The typical practice in this country is to collect mixed waste and dump it at unsanitary landfills that aren’t properly marked for leachate. It is not only unsafe but also environmentally unfriendly. This practice does not allow for waste recycling to conserve resources. Many times, poor, jobless people from lower socio-economic levels, including scavengers or scavengers of Guest Posting, will parade these landfills in order to collect recyclables such as plastics, metal scraps and bobbles. This is at their own health and well-being’s expense.
Several techniques can be used to separate recyclable fractions from blended waste and transport them into recycling centres. In many countries, these methods aren’t cost-effective or practical. The first method involves the segregation of wastes at the residences using storage methods. Sorted wastes from the households are then collected immediately. A different scenario is when mixed wastes from homes are collected and sent to a sorting center where the segregation process will be carried out by individuals. Sorted recyclables are sent to recycling facilities for further processing, while non-recyclables go into landfills. The first program was cheaper than the second. It’s possible to have waste providers bring their recyclable wastes directly to the recycling facility, without having to pay for disposal services. Most of the time, these wastes will be purchased by the recycling facility for a set price. Both the collection of waste and material recovery may require independent clients. Buyers usually barter or pay cash to the material generators. In Yoruba, the buyers are called ‘paaro.’ They exchange used clothes, jewelry and shoes for plastic pails. The waste sorting process can be carried out by the waste collection teams who quickly remove valuable items from the waste stream as they move towards land fill. It is possible to manipulate this in a less effective way.
The modes of transportation and waste collection have a great impact on the waste separation and recycling process. When all fractions of segregated waste are collected from the homeowners using the same vehicle, this is called co-collection. When several fractions of waste are collected in different vehicles, this is called segregated collection. Even two different techniques can be used for co-collection. Transporting sorted wastes in a multi-compartment truck is possible. Even the household waste can be divided into separate parts and then bagged to transport in a single compartment vehicle. Thirdly, you could use alternate schedules in which one component of the sorted wastes would be collected today and another tomorrow. In Nigeria, and in many other developing countries due to their economic situation it is impossible to use one vehicle only for one type of waste. Thirdly, the third option is also not a cost-benefit analysis.
Last, but certainly not least is the collection of compounded waste from Nigerian communities. Although it may seem to be a simple process at first glance, this can lead to a separation problem in recycling facilities. Transporting sorted household waste can be difficult, but it will result in a better recycling operation with lower costs. The time has come to determine which segregation scheme and transportation method is most suitable for your country. As a permanent solution to the persistent problems of waste management in this country, techniques which encourage waste recycling and recovery should be considered. It is important to encourage the techniques of segregating wastes at home, bagging them and transporting them in a single compartment vehicle. The government should also consider an intermediate sorting facility where wastes will be separated before final transport into recycling facilities. It is a great way to generate income. Last, but certainly not least, the collection of compound wastes from Nigerian communities can be easier than it appears.

The time has come to determine which segregation scheme and transportation method is most suitable for your country. As a permanent solution to the persistent problems of waste management in this country, techniques which encourage waste recycling and materials recovery should be considered. It is important to encourage the separation of wastes at home, bagging them and transporting them in a single compartment vehicle. The government should also consider an intermediate sorting facility where wastes will be separated before being transported to recycling facilities. The jobless youth and the teaming youth population will see a big boost in income.
