Taikone Beach has become a dumping ground for surrounding communities, due to the lack of waste management services in the area. 

The beach front is covered with rubbish, posing a health threat to residents and threatening marine life. Some residents have taken the initiative to clean up the beach but to no avail because there is too many rubbish.

A resident, David Vai is appealing to communities to refrain from disposing rubbish on the beach.

Apart from waste management services, there are no proper drainages, toilets and water supply is inadequate to almost all homes.

With a population of about 600 people, Taikone is an urban village with its services coming under the jurisdiction of the National Capital District Commission.
