A severely polluted river divides east and west Nima, a densely populated area of Ghana's capital, Accra. Both sides of the community slope down to the river, washing trash and debris into the watercourse when it rains. In addition, in the absence of adequate waste collection and sanitation, the river serves as a de facto dumping ground and a latrine. Sanitation workers regularly clear the waterway, but refuse is not collected, only raked to the banks to allow the water to flow.
