dc.description.abstract The investigation was conducted in ten (10) town sectors in the Winneba Metropolis of the Central Region, Ghana. Questionnaires, interviews and observations were used to solicit information from the inhabitants on environmental issues pertaining in their communities. The major forms of pollution were identified as water, land, noise and air. Domestic, agricultural, industrial and construction were the sources of waste generated in the municipality. Indiscriminate damping of household and market waste in and around the town is a major problem. Some recommendations have been given to help solve environmental problems confronting the metropolis, which can again be used as a yardstick for other communities in the country. en_US
