This research work is aim at examining the practices and problems solid waste management with particular reference to IMT Campus III.
The research choose the random sampling Technique based on the population concentration from three (3) location within the study area.
The data obtained were analysed using percentage statistics method. From the analysis of data and discussion the practices in the use include open dumps and open burning which indicate poor management.
