The film’s principal role is Nkem Owoh, a numerous award-winning actor and comedian who was co-produced by Jessica Agu and Ismaila.

Sani Danja, Ime Bishop Umoh, Vivian Pius, Prince Unigwe, Mary Apolo, and others appear in the film.

It depicts the risks of child labor as well as the state of decay and rot that afflicts most aspects of Nigeria’s educational system.

Below is a review by Cinema Pointer:

‘The Garbage School,’ as the title suggests, appears to be a severe case of GIGO. It’s one of those films where inexperienced filmmakers rely on their “positive message” to rescue their film from being mocked at the theater.
‘The Garbage School,’ despite its “positive message,” is a mix of extremely bad acting performances and severely talentless story-telling, ensuring that it lacks any sense of entertainment value.
It was so awful that we overheard an old couple having a sad chat as we walked down the corridor.
