mining waste


Mining waste along the road from Ndola to Kitwe. Waste from Anglo-American copper mines. Currently it is under Mopani copper mines. Environmental pollution from foreign owned multinational has a huge impact on Zambia. There is no policy in place to ensure the waste is cleared. Acids wash out from this into the environment. A stream is very close by and acids enter the stream and onto the compounds (shanty towns).
