The photograph in Figure 12(a) shows the waste dump near Lake Lugu during the period 2008-2012. The dump appears as a white area between forested hills. Figure 12(b) is a close up of the landfill site which shows rubbish in it with the plastic liner which isolates the surrounding environment from the rubbish visible at the edge. Mountains can be seen in the background.
