EnviroServ Uganda (ESU) has established a hazardous waste landfill on a 44 hectare plot of land located in the Nyamasoga village in the Hoima district of Uganda. The site, which was officially inaugurated on 23 April 2015, was strategically chosen to be close to the exploratory oil drilling blocks on Lake Albert, as well as in close proximity of a future proposed oil refinery site. The expected waste stream will initially be stabilised drilling mud cuttings, drilling fluids and other stabilised hazardous waste. The site may in future receive other industrial waste and waste from the proposed oil refinery.
