About the course
One of the major environmental problems faced by India is management of solid waste in cities and towns. In almost all the cities/towns in the developing world, the municipal authorities are responsible for the collection, transport and disposal of municipal wastes. India lacks appropriate strategies, methods for mobilization of financial resources and the necessary infrastructure for organized waste management.
This leads to low collection coverage, especially in poor or marginal areas of the cities, and also to uncontrolled disposal. In India, approximately 62 million tonnes of waste are generated annually and about 5-25% of the urban local bodies’ budget is utilized for solid waste management.
Up to 50-60 % of the waste generated daily remained uncollected in the cities; the remaining waste is collected irregularly, dumped in an uncontrolled manner, or burnt on vacant plots or on the outskirts of cities. In this course, an attempt has been made to provide a comprehensive review of municipal solid waste (MSW) management for Indian cities to evaluate the current status and identify the challenges and opportunities of MSW management.
