Abstract


This study assessed the environmental problems and methods of waste management in Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria. Waste management is the collection, transportation, processing, recycling or disposal of waste materials, usually the one produced by human activities in an effort to reduce their effect on human health or on local aesthetics. Data for this study was collected from the random administration of two hundred (200) questionnaires on categories of respondents in the study area. The simple percentages and frequency table were used in analyzing the data. Results from this study showed that waste management personnel have contributed immensely to the management of waste in the area. However, they are confronted with some problems, which, if given the necessary encouragements, will be great help in
the management of waste system in the area. This study will be of great help
to environmentalists, planners, researches and policy makers.

Keywords: Environment, Methods, Problems, and Waste Management.
