This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Environmental Management and Sustainability at the International Hellenic University. Onitsha is a commercial city on the bank of river Niger in south-eastern part of Nigeria and a big commercial hub in that region. It is allegedly known to be the city with the biggest market in the whole of west Africa. Over several years, because of the existence of governmental policies and legislations that favours local and international businesses in the state, there have been a great influx of businessmen and businesswomen from all over the world visiting and investing in Onitsha. Economically and developmentally, the benefit is no doubt overwhelming. However, this comes with quite some societal and environmental negative effect. One is solid waste. Hence, the goal of this thesis work is to examine and analyse the existing solid waste management resources and strategies in Onitsha, Anambra state, Nigeria; it also studies the classes of waste generated, how are generated waste disposed and treated in the city; examination of the factors militating against effective and sustainable solid waste management in the city and at the end suggest appropriate possible measures to tackle the existing challenges and problems. To fully understand the status, the theory of planned behaviour was applied to see how the residents reacts to certain opinion about solid waste management in the city.
