Due to rapid industrialization, education, business activities, software development population of Bidar city of Karnataka state of India is increasing day by day, present population of Bidar city as per 2011 census is 257644 hence increasing solid waste generation. Around 0.35kg/person/day solid waste is generated and around 90 ton wastes are dumped in dumping site daily. Collection and transportation is one of the important functional components of solid waste management. Thus to keep city clean and environmentally healthy, the management of solid waste has now becoming an important issue, therefore undertaken to generate information on physical and chemical parameters and route optimization of Bidar municipal solid waste. The average results showed that municipal solid waste in the city i,e moisture content is 30.02% by weight of fresh waste. And the average density of waste is being 304.2kg/m3. The other parameters in the physical analysis like paper, plastic, metal, glass, rubber & leather, stone & brick, ash & earth and total compostable matter are 6.13%, 6.27%, 4.34%, 3.77%, 4.54%, 10.99%, 18.71%, 31.98% having their average percentage values respectively. In the chemical analysis the pH of the waste is slightly acidic having an average value is 6.8, the high calorific average value is13.64k.j/kg carbon, nitrogen, phosphate are 25.50%, 13.11%, 0.44% having their average values respectively. And volatile matter 73.75% and non-volatile matter 26% having their average percentage values.
