Abstract: ABSTRACT This study was designed to determine the environmental impacts of solid waste land filling in Yola North Local Government Area of Adamawa State. The specific objectives of the study were to identify the various types of solid wastes, sources of solid wastes generation, impacts of landfill on health and the environment and control measures in minimizing the impact on health and environment. Data was collected from 100 households (those near and far from the landfill). Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics (mean). The research revealed that various types of solid waste identified were glass, polythene bags, metals, plastics, clothes. Sources of solid waste include domestic, commercial, hospitals, institutional and household. Impacts included contamination of vegetables, accident, flood, health deterioration, soil fertility, pest infestation, smoke, disease transmission, income sources and air, water and land pollution. The effects that were assessed were the possible impacts of the solid waste land filling on the health and the environment and also residents view regarding the location of the landfill. In order to achieve its objective, a comparison was done between the nearby and faraway. The result showed that both residents were affected by the location of the landfill closer to their settlements. It was noted that the residents whose houses were (200m) to the landfill were most affected and were victims of malaria, chest pain, diarrhea and bad smell. However, residents whose houses were faraway (200-400m) were also affected with chest pain and bad smell from landfill, mainly when wind blew in their direction. In conclusion the study revealed that landfills/dumpsites should be located faraway from human settlement. Therefore, the study recommended that landfill/dumpsite should be properly located and managed to minimize its effects on the environment. The government and municipalities should revise laws regarding the location of the landfills/dumpsites. Keywords: Land filling, solid waste, yola north, Nigeria.
