Public-Private Partnership is a veritable tool of governance in the 21st century that enables the government to collaborate with the private sector for the provision of infrastructural development and public services. It affords the government opportunity to leverage private sector finance, technical know-how, and manpower for the provision of public services and infrastructure. The Lagos State government has adopted this development strategy in different sectors especially, road construction and waste management. The waste management sector is a multilevel sector requiring huge finance, expertise, and manpower to properly manage; and being a very delicate sector with huge implications for the environment and health of the citizen, utmost effectiveness and efficiency are required in its management. The study shows the importance and PPP as a tool for the development of the waste management sector in Lagos State. This was discussed in the light of the New Public Governance (NPG) theory underscoring the pertinence of PPP as a governance tool that creates significant changes to the responsibility and function of government. The study employed the cross-sectional research design method to capture the different stakeholders involved in the study. A purposive sampling method was utilised while quantitative and qualitative data were obtained through two well-structured questionnaires and interviews at the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), Secretary of the Association of Waste Managers of Nigeria (AWAMN), WestAfrican ENRG, and a waste collector business. Data collected were analysed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics through the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS Version 20) to address the research questions and hypotheses. The findings were discussed and the study concluded that PPP models are not properly engaged by the government, hence creating dysfunctionality and ineffectiveness in the performance of the Private Sector Participant (PSP) and strangulating progressive development in the sector. It then recommends improvement of the institutional framework that will guarantee the effectiveness of PPP and development sustainability for the waste management sector of the State.
