Abstract

The objective was to discuss the challenges and effectiveness of solid waste management in Nigeria, especially within the coastal city of Calabar. A chronology of waste management efforts within the traditional and modern city development trends of Calabar was provided. We critically examined the effectiveness of the contemporary waste management options adopted by successive governments and management agencies. The adoption of integrated waste management and environmental education should be key considerations for sustainable management of waste.
