Namibia does not have laws and regulations in place to guide the operations of local authorities and hazardous waste producers, a situation which has led to dangerous waste being dumped along with general household refuse. A performance audit report on hazardous waste management compiled by the Auditor General indicates that at present, there are only two hazardous waste disposal sites in the country, one in Windhoek and another at Walvis Bay. The auditors further found that of the nine local authorities visited in the four regions, only six, with the exception of Windhoek, Oshakati, and Walvis Bay, were operating with waste management regulations, while four operated waste disposal sites without environmental clearance certificates.
