The term ‘solid waste’ refer to unwanted or useless solid materials generated by human activities from various sources like residential and commercial areas, industries, hospitals, construction and demolition activities, municipal services, agricultural activities and treatment plants.

Solid waste management is a term that is used to refer to the process of collecting, treating and disposing of solid wastes. Improper disposal of solid wastes can create unsanitary conditions which in turn lead to pollution of environment and outbreak of vector borne diseases.

Management of solid wastes is a major challenge these days for the administrators, engineers and planners. Physical, chemical, biological and geotechnical properties of solid wastes are important for the design of a solid waste management system. The cardinal principle in a solid waste management system is 3R’s i.e., Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Important components of a solid wastes management system include: Waste minimization at source, materials recovery and recycling, wastes transformation, volume reduction before disposal, wastes disposal and database management.
