Abstract: Over the years, studies have shown that rapid population growth and the growth of urban centers result in the substantial increase in the amount of wastes generated hence the demand for a sustainable collection system. This research aims at evaluating haul container system of waste collection in Enugu Municipal which comprises 10 zones with the view of determining the zone with higher efficiency and better cost. The data for the research was obtained through the ten zone collection crews, questionnaires (through random sampling) and oral interview. The result indicates that there is problem of unregulated waste dumping, as a result of ineffective waste collection and inadequate number of waste bins in the said zones. The weekly operational cost of the haul system in the zones as obtained from the analysis carried out are N72,000, N71,000, N66,000, 62,000, N60,000, N59,000 and N58, 000 for Emene, ( New Haven and Agbani Road), ( Independent layout and Coal Camp), GRA, (Trans-Ekulu and Ogui) Achara-Layou t andAbakpa respectively and the efficiency of the collection crew in the zones are also 88% , 83%, 78%, 73% and 68% for Abakpa, Achara- Layout , (Trans- Ekulu, GRA and Ogui Road), ( Independent layout and Coal Camp) and ( Agbani Road, New Haven and Emene) respectively. Therefore the haul container system of waste collection can be improved by provision of the required basic infrastructural amenities by Government through the waste management agency (ESWAMA).
