Bambui Waste Management Project

Executive Summary

There is an eminent threat to the human health in the Bambui Township in northern Cameroon. The town is faced by an immense mismanagement of the town’s dumpsite, which is a detrimental factor of consideration in the local public health concerns. The township dumpsite includes a low-level management as well as the low-level recycling methods. The township is faced by several health associated risks, such as the cancers, respiratory infection as well as other skin infections.

This project, however, identifies this surroundings issue as a neglect in the society of the town inhabitants in northern Cameroon. The township is in need of an immediate action of the effects of this garbage collection point mismanagement. The citizens of the town in great extent mishandle the wastes from their homes. Most of these homesteads do not consider the issue of accumulating the wastes into the dust bins. The population in this area is poorly educated on the proper handling of waste as well as the detrimental effects of the waste mismanagement. In such the population is at risk of the potential effects of the mismanaged dumpsites in the northern country’s Township.

The local authorities of the Township have failed their inhabitants in failing to address the resulting disposals management issues. The authority similarly uses outdated as well as unethical methods of recycling the waste from the Bambi township dumpsite. The country employed personnel has inadequate the proper equipment and apparatus to handle the Bambui waste recycling well. Most of the township waste is biodegradable, in that they can be recycled into other finished products which can be used in other ways in the local township.

This project seeks to set up a waste recycling plant at the Bambui, so as to recycle all the wastes that are non-biodegradable. The plant is proposed to accommodate all the wastes of the town, as well as the neighbouring towns, who will have a taste of the smoothened environmental enhancement. This project similarly is spanned to bring an environmental change into the surrounding of the Bambui. The plant is planned to reduce the amount of the waste in the main dumpsite while making the local households have an improved waste management process. The plant will alternatively reduce the amount of cases reported in the local health facilities, ascribed to the waste mismanagement such as the food poisoning as well as other lifestyle diseases such as the deadly cancers.

Cameroon, a modern state, enjoys a crucial share of the larger and economically stabled West African state. The country enjoys a diverse culture endowment as well as an ethically concerned society to live a modern life. The Bambui Township is in the northern Cameroon, which has over years been neglected by the central Cameroon government regarding development. The country’s lower region is well developed, as opposed to the upper Cameron parts. This forms the essence of the poor environmental planning in the Bambui Township. The township is one of the several towns poorly developed from the effects if the central government neglect.

This project, which will involve a professional engineering team set to install a waste management recycling plant in the Township. There will be a data collection exercise targeting the essential areas of concern that the community recycling plant should address. The plant is planned to be set up by the recycling plan upon the completion of the required information collection. There will be an analysis of the best mechanical prospects to be considered for the recycling plant, putting into consideration that there are several types of wastes in the Bambui Township. This will help setup the preferred plan to well recycle the Bambui Township household waste both biodegradable as well as the non-biodegradable.

There are many solutions which can be applied alternatively with the waste recycling plan method. This project seeks to identify some of those short term solutions that the people of the Bambui Township can properly employ to make quick returns on their waste management efforts. These solutions seek to go in line with the set environmental laws. The engineering students in the area need to focus on designing methods which are cost effective for the entire community to apply in the efforts of making the town an environmentally pollution free. The methods designed however must be in line with the key goals and objectives of reducing the waste and the amount of the environmental pollution witnessed in the region. The efforts will as well make sure there is an improvement of the locally available municipal council efforts to manage the waste in the Bambui Township.

The best solutions in the waste management efforts of the Bambui Township will revolve around the six key options which seek to manage the environmentally challenged society. These options are ranked in the order of the most favoured to the least favoured. In the Township society, the solution to be indicted for the wastage management should consequently consider the most favoured factor. The most favoured in this case is the prevention. Prevention targeted the diseases as well as the other conditions which may erupt from the potentially environmental waste mismanagement. In the bid to manage the waste, the disease prevention objective will be tacked.

The second option of consideration in favouritism order is the minimization of the waste disposal in the Township. Efforts made to minimize the waste in the town will help make the Bambui neat and clean, hence, portray the best inhabitancy society as well as enhance the business doping in the town.


The northern Cameroonian town of Bambui faces a challenge in its bids to manage the waste disposed of by the town inhabitants. The town municipal authorities provide little to no solution to this imminent threat of environmental pollution. The town disposed of a lot of water in the main garbage collection points, while pilling up poses and s a challenge to the growing population in terms of health as well as other human being inhabitancy factors. This project suggests a waste recycling plant to the suited in the township, so as to cater for the waste management issues, in recycling and to favour the reuse of such waste communities, such as the plastics.

There are several health-related challenges related to the mismanagement of waste in any urban population. This report identifiers three main health-related conditions ascribed to the wrong disposal and mishandling of households waste. These conditions are; reproduction problems, such as the cases of unintended abortion, miscarriage as well as other pregnancy problems; cancer, where several number of cancerous substances are found in the dumpsites, which when inhaled or stepped on can induce cancerous cells in the human body; and lastly hygiene related diseases, such as the food poisoning, cholera outbreak as well as other food and water contamination diseases.

There are six factors of consideration when determining the solution to the Bambui Township waste disposal problems. Such factors are aimed at ensuring that the solution will be as much as possible try to help smoothen the lifestyle of the Township inhabitants. These factors are ranked in the manner of the most preferred to the least preferred factor. They are majorly based on the effect of the solution to the wellbeing of the town inhabitants as well as the environmental challenge of waste disposal. They include the following; preventing human diseases, minimising waste disposal, reusing the appropriate waste, recycling of some of the waste, energy recovery as well as the disposal minimisation. The Township can have the best engineering interns as well as the engineering professionals to design the best solution to cater for the waste issues and restore the environmental position in the community.
