ABSTRACT
Currently, use and disposal of plastic by consumers through waste management activities in Ghana not only creates environmental problems, but also reinforces the notion of a wasteful society. The magnitude of this problem has led to increasing pressure from the public for efficient and practical measures to solve the waste problem. This paper analyses the impact of plastic use and disposal in Ghana. It emphasizes the need for commitment to proper management of the impacts of plastic waste and effective environmental management in the country. Sustainable Solid Waste Management (SSWM) is a critical problem for developing countries with regards to climate change and greenhouse gas emission, and also the general wellbeing of the populace. Key themes of this paper are producer responsibility and management of products at end of life. The paper proposes two theatrical recovery models that can be used to address the issue of sachet waste in Ghana.

Mentions: As shown in Figure 2, the municipal or state is the main body of public investment in the establishment of sachet waste recovery and recycling programs. The state or municipal authorities will have the physical responsibility of collecting the sachet waste while the producers will be financially responsible for the programme and also providing incentives to consumers to encourage return of sachet waste to vantage points or collections points provided by the municipal authorities. This can also be done for other useful waste streams instead of them ending up at landfill sites or being disposed of improperly.
