One of the largest growing agro-based industries in the world is poultry. The industry is faced with the problem of ineffective disposal of solid waste produce without jeopardize health of people. This study examined waste management techniques among poultry farmers in Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State. Primary data were collected with the aid of structured questionnaire and stratified random sampling procedure was employed to collect the data. Data were collected from one hundred and nineteen (119) poultry farmers. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics and multinomial logit model. Results showed that majority of the farmers employed burying of poultry waste as management technique. Result also showed that 8.25 tons of wastes were generated per production cycle. Experience in poultry business significantly affected the likelihood of rendering as a waste management technique employed by farmers. However, the frequency of waste disposal positively influenced the choice of burning as a management technique. The study recommends entrenchment of policies and guidelines that make adherence to standard sanitation/health practices a normal routine to all poultry farmers.
