Abstract

Landfill is the final destination of waste generation cycle that affects human activities and natural environment. Population increase and poor management are significant factors contributing to waste disposal issues. Development and expansion of townships do affect the efficiency in the generation and disposal of waste in the ecosystem. Impact of waste disposal issues either positive or negative may cut across the boundaries. This research describes a study on a landfill soil and environmental pollutions because of the presence of heavy metals wastes. The elaboration focuses on the level and implication of heavy metal pollution on the physical environment such as soil and underground water and human welfare in the ecosystem.
