Post Monsoon Study of Characteristics of Solid Waste as per Depth at Phursungi Dumping Yard in Pune Region

Chetan G. More, Sagar M. Gawande


Abstract: The by-product of drastic development and transformation in behavior of human action is creating a corpus of solid waste which is creating unease position in world and in India. Per capita resource consumption in urban areas of India is more related to rural area of India which is also producing the waste in the same proportion. In India, Pune is a cosmopolitan city in Maharashtra state showing typical urban population which produces about 1500 1600 MT of solid waste per day. Pune Municipal Corporation disposes the municipal solid waste in Phursungi dumping yard depot. The residents of Phursungi and Urli villages, who have been agitating for the closure of garbage depot, are dissatisfied. It has been more than a decade since they began agitating, but no concrete action has been taken so far. On the contrary, the stink and pollutants emitting from the depot have left them more inclined to health issues and to increase the efficiency of dumping yard it is very important to understand the characteristics of solid waste. Previously the characteristics of solid waste of Pune have been studied but in this paper it has been studied as respect to the horizontal as well as vertical plane up to the depth of 6 feet by using the designed sampler.
