Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the present condition of waste and bio-security management of poultry farms in relation to public health located in Burichang Upazila, Cumilla. The study was conducted from 13th October to 12th December and the study area was consisting of three villages (Haripur, Jogotpur and purnoboti). A total of 22 farms were considered for this study. From each farm, the data was collected individually from the farm owners by using a well designed questionnaire. From the study, we see that 85% of the farm owners were male and most of them were educated. The ratio of broiler and layer farm was (72.73:27.27) %. Different types of litter materials were used in these farms and most commonly used litter material was rice husk (82.81%). 77.27% farms had long trees and 22.73% farms had bushes surrounding them. As sanitizers and disinfectants different types of components (water, calcium hydroxide, and potassium permanganate) were used individually or combined; the combination of potassium permanganate and water (54.51%) was mostly used. The litter materials were used for different purposes and 86.36% users were satisfied with the result the achieved after using those litter materials. About 95.7% farms had no foot bath facility. Dead birds (68.18%) and spoiled eggs (81.82%) were thrown into the water or surroundings. About 86.36% farms cause water pollution. 22.73% farms cause noise, 13.64% farms cause bad smell and 63.63% farms cause both noise and smell. Overall, the waste and bio-security management facilities were not sufficient. They need to be improved soon; otherwise it could be major concern for public health. With lack of training facilities, it was always bound to happen. The Government need to take necessary initiatives to increase the training facilities and awareness campaigns and the farmers should also be conscious about proper waste disposal, farm bio-security and public health.
