LIQUID WASTE DISPOSAL IN GHANA - WELCOME TO LAVENDER HILL

BY EDMUND SMITH-ASANTE

Although the Accra Metropolitan Assembly has indicated it is going to decommission a broken down liquid waste disposal site popularly known as Lavender Garden or Hill, it still continues to receive hundreds of cesspit tankers or emptiers every month which discharge their contents directly into the sea near Accra's Light House at James Town.



Trucks visit the dump site daily around the clock as can be seen here.





Three tankers simultaneously poopoo into the sea - a very worrying source of open defecation in Ghana.



An unpleasant and unhealthy site on the Lavender Hill daily.



Discharged waste trickling into the sea.



Nasty discharge from the waste truck.


Truck discharges effluent and boats do fishing few metres behind.


Lots of canoes fishing in the same sea polluted by the untreated waste.

  1. Thank you for sharing these photos. I find it so sad to see people using the sea as liquid waste removal. I find it so hard to see canoes fishing in that polluted water. Where exactly is Lavender Hill located?
