This paper is on the suitability analysis of Egbo dumpsite solid waste management as an integral part of the environmental management system. It is all about preparing a waste management plan with the overall aim of developing a waste management system that meets the region’s needs and contributes to the economy and social development. The objective of this research is to present the environmental impact assessment and evaluation of the suitability of the Egbo dumpsite. The study looked at the level of impact and adversity by carrying out buffering analysis and queries to show the distance of the dumpsite to health centers, residential buildings, rivers, and roads. The measures necessary to prevent or minimize are being recommended. ArcGIS 10.8 geoprocessing tool was employed for spatial analyses with map data sourced from the USGS website. In addition, operational guidelines, monitoring and post-closure measures have been proposed. The procedures followed outlined, and recommendations made in this study will serve as a guide for decision and policymakers in the fields of environmental impact assessment and dumpsite suitability assessment
