Characteristics of Household Solid Waste and its Management Options in the Urban Areas, Jessore, Bangladesh

Rezaul Karim, Nabila Nawshin

This project was carried out on the household waste management system in ward # 8 of Jessore Pourashava. The main work of this project was the characterization of household waste and its management system in the urban areas, starting from the storage to dumping area of the household waste. It is found that household wastes are not properly managed in ward # 8 and anyone has no tension about the household waste. Different types of household wastes are found during survey time such as biodegradable, non-biodegradable, recycling matters, reusable wastes etc. A total of approximately 0.40 ton of solid waste was generated by 53 households over the 15 days used for the assessment. Half of this total quantity of solid waste emanated from households in the middle income family whilst low- and high-income households contributed 32 % and 18 % respectively. The greater proportion of waste emanating from low-income households is due to relatively larger household size as compared to middle- and high-income households. However, the average per capita waste generation rate in the low area (0.13kg/cap/day) was almost equivalent to that of middle and high income family with 0.128 kg/cap/day and 0.133 kg/cap/day respectively. From the project it can be concluded that government need to conscious about the storage, collection, transport and dumping spot of household waste of Jessore Pourashava
