                                                                         ABSTRACT
The study aimed ensuring a clean environment in the felele Metropolis. It analysed the
underlying factors affecting effective solid waste management in the metropolis and
suggested possible measures to tackle the problem. The research gathered data from two
main sources namely: secondary and primary sources. The three main techniques employed
in gathering the primary data were: preliminary field investigation, questionnaire survey and
face-to-face interview. The following key findings were established to be the factors
affecting effective solid waste management in the Metropolis. These are:

-Inadequate skip supply for storing waste.
-Lack of routine collection of waste.
-Poor methods of waste management.
-Inadequate resources for waste management institutions to effectively collect the
waste generated.
In the light of these problems enumerated above, the research recommended the adequate
supply of skips, regular collection of waste, use of Integrated Solid Waste Management
(ISWM) Model, proper management of the landfill and adequate sourcing of the waste
management institutions.
