Environment Minister calls for better waste management

Minister of Environment, Forestry, and Tourism, Pohamba Shifeta says the current waste management situation in Namibia is unsatisfactory, as many villages, towns, and municipalities lack proper landfills and instead resort to using dumpsites for waste disposal. Nampa reports that Shifeta, during the commemoration of World Clean-up Day, stressed that poor waste management, which ranges from non-existent collection systems to ineffective disposal methods, contributes to air, water, and soil pollution.
