Identification of suitable Landfill Site for Solid Waste in a Small Town of Uttar Pradesh

Lubna Siddiqui [2]


Abstract: Municipal solid waste generation rate is over-riding the population growth rate not only in mega-cities but also in small towns in India. Management of solid waste has emerged as challenge to the civic authorities. The present study aims at examining the different aspects of solid waste and suggests remedial measures for safe disposal of waste. The study is based on field survey. It is concluded that though the waste generation rate in the study area is only 0.27 kg/head/day yet because of financial crunch and public apathy the waste is littered on the roads and streets and unhygienically dumped in the river bed and ditches. Based on the A financial accounting for the waste management has been carried out. Based on the guidelines of CPCB, a land fill site has been identified. Finally a financial accounting for the waste management has been carried out. At present per capita expenditure on waste management is about Rs.417/. If the proposed plan is implemented the per capita expenditure on waste management will be Rs.635/ but the efficiency will increase manifold.
