Obsolete dump site operation

The infamous dump site at Olusosun is notorious for its noxious fumes and the long queue of differently sized and shaped compactors waiting outside to gain access to the growing dump site and deposit even more waste onto the already formidable-looking heap.

Scavengers

At least once a month, Magodo, Ketu and Alausa are covered in thick black smoke billowing from the dump site and reaching as far back as Ojota and environs. The rest of the time, there is a nauseating odour affecting passersby, industry and commerce depending on the direction of the wind.

While Lagos state residents and the general public bemoan the misinformed location of the dump site, it is essential to note that Olusosun was once located on the outskirts of the populated area in the 1990s, but due to the massive expansion and population explosion in Lagos, the site now sits seemingly amidst the almost 400,000 residents of Ojota, Alausa, Oregun, and Ikosi; both commercial and residential.
