Abstract: The paper focuses on solid waste management in Nigerian cities with particular attention to Lagos and Ado-Ekiti cities. It has critically examined the waste storage methods, frequency of wastes collection and waste disposal methods in both cities. Research findings show that solid waste collection and disposal should be on daily basis in the highly commercialized cities, while in the less commercialized cities, solid waste collection and disposal can be carried out on weekly basis. The waste disposal methods such as open dumps, emptying waste into water bodies which pose great hazard to human, animal and plant lives are commonly practiced in Nigeria, while less hazardous methods such as disposal through incineration and sanitary landfill are less employed.
