Impact of Solid Waste Management on Ado Ekiti Property Values



This paper seeks to assess the implication of the dangers posed by haphazard disposal of solid waste on the built environment cum property values by examining its impact on the inhabitants, the building structures as well as the neighborhood with particular reference to Ado Ekiti Nigeria. A review of literature which is hinged on the framework of healthy city concept is used as a standard for quality. Closed and open ended questions were administered on randomly sampled 298 residents of Ado Ekiti randomly and analyzed using simple descriptive analysis. Findings show that values of buildings as well as the physiological well-being of individuals cannot be considered in isolation without considering the building and the environment in which they live vis a vis their waste disposal methods. The study recommends rigorous public enlightenment, re introduction of hygiene studies from primary education, enforcement of environmental and waste disposal protection laws with corresponding policy statements to help achieve the Healthy City Concept of the United Nations.
