ABSTRACT The study investigated the “Influence of Urban Population Behaviour on Solid Waste Management in Jinja Town” and it was revealed that waste management is still one of the biggest problems that is affecting development and reorganisation on Jinja town. Following history, Jinja used to be one of cleanest towns due to its influence in Uganda’s development process. The town however now has one of the worst pictures known to the country. Although the town is noted for being infamously spilled with waste as shown in the research, this picture portrays the set of Uganda’s town set up. The study questionnaires and interview guides were highly responded to by women who composed of 66.9% of the total respondents. In terms of increased population, the study revealed that population grew due to the central location of Jinja town which was reflected with a total percentage of 61.3%. Respondent’s opinion on population behaviour revealed that there was no careful damping of waste which was reflected by 141 respondents representing 43.3%. The study on this ground concluded that waste management still remains a very disturbing element in management of the city’s development. The study therefore recommended that there is dare need for creating more damping stations and clear laws on management of waste if population cannot be controlled in the city~
