Abstract: This paper examines waste management practices in peri-urban communities. Using Karu, Nasarawa State, Nigeria as a case study, the difficulties faced in localizing the sustainable development concept in Greater Karu metropolis have been identified and the waste management practices in Greater Karu assessed through a rigorous review of existing literature and an analysis of waste management practices in Karu, Nasarawa State. The study revealed a lack of proactive and sustained political support exacerbated by limited human resources and knowledge base further restricting capacity to build support and consensus amongst stakeholders. Using case study method, the paper examines the effect of waste management strategies on sustainable environment suggesting more effective roles for stakeholders and it concludes with a section on lessons learned and necessary steps for sustainable waste management of the environment.
