Abstract: Maiduguri, like many other cities in Nigeria, rarely has available information on solid waste, due to principally financial constraint and people’s attitude towards waste management. Prior work on waste management in Maiduguri (1)(2) revealed a number of important information related to the waste generally and its management problems in particular. To tackle the problems, a number of both technical and non-technical solutions were offered (1)(2), out of which sanitary landfill was proposed as an Integrated Wastes Management Facility (IWMF) in Maiduguri (2). However, this study deemed that. As far as IWMF is concerned, sanitary landfill should be considered and should be given the lowest priority. The aim of this study is therefore primarily to determine the sources, rate of generation, composition and modes of disposal of the solid wastes within the metropolis. Secondly, the study will attempt to propose a more reasonable and efficient integrated wastes management methodology that will capitalize on efficient resource re-utilization prior to final disposal.
