Abstract

The manuscript looked at feather waste disposal and the consequent environmental impacts. Primary data was generated by field observations for assessment of the road side environment. The field study revealed that roadside disposal of chicken feathers wastes has serious impacts on the environment. Some of these impacts include physical, chemical and biological nuisance of the feather wastes to the environment, the waste dumps also serve as hideouts for rodents which are risky. This article therefore recommends that Government should come up with proper orientation and environmental laws should be put in place for the general public and also to provide necessary facilities and arrange for better methods of collection of solid wastes. Keywords: feathers, chicken, open dumping, Tuticorin.
