  • The study investigates the challenge of solid waste management in a congested inner-city environment like Aboabo in Ghana and how some resources from the intellectual traditions of local religions could contribute to addressing this problem. The findings show that Aboabo has no systematic way of managing its solid waste as residents dump their waste indiscriminately. Poor management of solid waste is not only due to lack of resources, enforcement of structures, right knowledge, but also the mind-set that feeds the waste management behavior of locals. The main argument of this study is that no development intervention with regards to solid waste management in the unit of analysis may prove successful unless the mind-set of the people is first changed through relevant reorientation from the intellectual traditions of the local religions. This study contributes to debates about the role of religion in matters of national development.
