Abstract: Waste and Energy have cohabited for a very long time as electric energy come from fossil fuels which invariably is from waste. The quantum of electric energy harnessed for development most especially in the developing Nations has remained very low. There has also been a growing desire by Nations to opt for alternative energy, with this eminent treat our Colleges and Tertiary Institutions are not left out of this quagmire. It is why this study investigated the waste to energy management and generation on yelwa campus of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Bauchi, as a prospect of waste to energy in institutional buildings, through a questionnaire adoption and chi-square analysis; from the findings, the available facilities for the collection and disposal of the wastes were inadequate, which resulted in the personal management of wastes by individuals in the community who either dispose such wastes in unused septic tanks, old and unused reservoir(s) and in some cases indiscriminately in open space within the campus finally, about 27.82 tons of waste is generated annually from five faculties and suggested the adoption of a viable option of converting this generated waste to usable energy
