Conclusions and Recommendations

From the Paper:

"Local governments have employed techniques from open dumping, to incineration to manage solid wastes, but these were challenged by some quarters. Because of this, local governments employ landfills. However, real estate developers have used up all available lowlands. If monitored and maintained on a regional basis and within the framework of the local governments contiguous with one another, land fills or even bay reclamation may yet prove to be the most acceptable method of waste disposal within the bounds of their financial capabilities provided that safeguards are included to prevent and control pollution (Lesaca, 1975 in Viado, 1990)."
