Keywords:Waste, Wealth, Covid-19 Pandemic
Nigeria is part of the countries and regions impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, which is a brand-new viral
illness. Virtually every area of the business has been significantly impacted and influenced by the epidemic.
Waste generation and management are among the 21st century's most urgent environmental issues.
Worldwide garbage quantities are continually rising despite legislative measures. It would be feasible to
save tremendous quantities of materials by enhancing reuse and recycling alternatives, in addition to the
significant environmental effects of the large amounts of waste land occupied. The Covid-19 epidemic had
a substantial influence on garbage recycling as well, which increased non-recyclable consumption in
response to hygienic requirements as well as new consumption habits. The research was planned as a
descriptive survey. This research focuses on sustainable post-Covid-19 pandemic methods for generating
money out of garbage. The study's conclusions showed that plastic, nylon, metal, organic fraction, nasal
masks, and other waste products may be recycled into riches both during and after the epidemic. Therefore,
the study advised that in order to avoid relying on "emergency approaches," based on having to resort to
rises in non-recyclable consumption types, it is essential to boost level of readiness for an anticipated
incidence of any disease outbreak in the future. It will also be stated how and where to turn waste into useful
