The study also revealed that efforts by government has been at place, these effort includes training the garage owners, sales of some waste products to some companies for recycling purposes. The study identified challenges facing the garages this included many garage sites were built in residential areas, poor record keeping of waste products etc and this was partly contributed by their poor academic backgrounds, which did not cover environmental issues in detail.
