Palm bunch management and disposal as solid waste have been studied for the amount discharged from selected palm oil mills in Abia State. The process of personal interviews was conducted and responses evaluated and tabulated. A correlation was drawn between the responses and previous research work on the use of palm bunch ash as admixture in the stabilization of soil for road construction works in Abia State. Palm bunch as solid waste has proven to be a good material in both ash and nanosized ash additive to soil in improving its strength properties which satisfied the standards for the materials’ use in pavement construction and rehabilitation. The results have encouraged the Ministries of Environment and Works to collaborate in this task to convert solid waste to usable materials in Geoengineering and “Geowaste” Engineering.
