Optimization of Solid Waste Management using Geographic Information System (GIS) for Zone A under Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC)

Kadam Puja Chandrakant, Hema Patel


Abstract: Rapid urbanization, surging population numbers, limitations of funding, emerging limitations of both energy and raw materials coupled with increasing industrial, commercial and economic development in Pimpri-Chinchwad area has given rise to an increased generation of various types of wastes. Among these wastes, managing of solid waste is a major problem faced by the city. Maintaining daily logs of collection and transport of solid waste is time consuming and difficult as it involves huge data and statistics.80 % of the total cost of solid waste management is being spent on collection and transportation so there is a need of proper monitoring of the system. This paper attempts to analyze the existing status of location of municipal bins along with the various secondary routes followed for the solid waste collection of Zone A under PCMC. Then using Arc GIS 3.2 a, a GIS based urban solid waste management system is proposed for the study area by proper optimizing the waste transportation routes and reallocating the bins f or efficiency in distance travelled and time taken. Thus Geographical Information System model would reduce the complications in waste management system to some extent and exhibit remedies for the same in the study area.
