keywords: Solid waste, solid waste management and integrated payment
Solid Waste Management in Lagos state today is a largely manual process. From the initial process of user waste evacuation down to the payment method, the entire value chain of waste management is fraught with irregularities. Some of these issues include inconvenient customer on boarding process, cumbersome and fraud-prone payment process, and a disjointed waste collection and revenue collection systems. The non-dynamic nature of waste truck deployment creates inconsistencies and failure of waste evacuation, thereby creating environmental pollution and occasional disease outbreak issues. The aim of the work is to create a database that will enable storage and management of data related to the solid waste and to integrate online payment capability into the web portal to be designed. Site visitation and Questionnaires were used to study the current system of Waste Management process and Waterfall model was used to developed the system. The system is Web-based application and it was developed using the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 with VB programming language used for coding of the application logic. MS Access Server was used for the database. The methodology is preferable because it is easy to out and the programming language is flexible, integrated and easy to code. This project implemented a convenient, comfortable, and secure web platform for both users and managers of waste to meet their joint aims; efficient and value-added waste evacuation process.
