Solid waste disposal sites are found on the outskirts of the urban areas, turning into the child sources of contamination due tothe incubation and proliferation of flies, mosquitoes, and rodents; that, in turn, are disease transmitters that affectpopulation’s health, which has its organic defenses in a formative and creative state. What to do with solid waste has longtroubled governments, industries, and individuals.Therefore, this study was design to determine the effects of the dumpsite on the surrounding human settlement in theMangwaneni area of the Golf Course dumpsite in Manzini city. The effects that were assessed were the possible impacts of the dumpsite on the health and the environment and also the residents view regarding the location of the dumpsite. Data werecollected from 78 household heads, through the use of self-administered questionnaires. Households heads were divided intostrata, with 39 nearby (<200m) and 39 far away (>200m) of the Mangwaneni area. In order to achieve its objectives, acomparison between the nearby and far away residents was done.
