Animesh Kumar Mandol | Md. Zahidul Islam [2]


Abstract: The JashorePourashava, which was established in 1864(Jessore Sadar Upazila, n.d.) and is located in the southwestern region of Bangladesh, is one of the oldest in the Bengal Province. The area has a current population of around 447,914(Kabir, 2020) people and covers an area of 14.72(Jessore Sadar Upazila, n.d.) square kilometer. The objective of this study is to evaluate the present conditions and potential future prospects of the country's first Regional Integrated Landfill and Resource Recovery Center (IL&RRC). While the solid waste collection system in the Pourashava is functioning well, there is a need to increase the number of Secondary Transfer Stations (STS) and manpower. The operation of the Biogas Plant and Compost Plant is progressing and the management of the Fecal Sludge Treatment Plant, Leachate Treatment, and Integrated Landfill is not up to the mark. The ground water test result has found satisfactory compared to Bangladesh Drinking water standard that is indicated no impact of leachate.
