Abstract: The increasing demand of food and raw materials for industries, leads to the development or mechanization of farmland which involves cultivation of large hectares of land for growing crops, raising of large number of livestock and other agricultural activities on the farm, such as, processing, storage, irrigation and drainage through the use of machineries and other equipment on the farm. This activity results into waste which could be enormous and demand proper management. This project focuses on waste generation, quantification, handling, treatment and disposal in mechanized farms in north central geo-political zone of Nigeria. Personal interview, administering of Questionnaire and experiments were carried out in other to collect information. The management waste adopted on these farms include; composting, burning/incineration and feeds for livestock. There really exists large quantities of wastes on these farms and there is the need for improvement on the existing wastes management processes to curb the environmental impact that these will cause.
