Abstract

Waste generation, collection, transportation, segregation, recovery and recycle, disposal this are the key factor in the waste management system in order to reduce and reuse the solid waste in rural and urban areas. It includes disposal of solid waste in cost effective manner, using waste to energy sanitary techniques, composting of organic waste and, land fill technique. In this paper we have studied solid waste management in Vadange village near Kolhapur. The predominance of open dumping and the absence of reliable data regarding generation and characterization of waste has created a difficult situation for rural local bodies responsible for managing solid waste generated in the village composting. Most common practice of waste processing is uncontrolled dumping which causes pollution. If the wastes are disposed in an uncontrolled manner these may cause adverse impact on public health & environment. Therefore, the solid wastages are still a major problem in this rural area. To overcome these problems, we have proposed to Recycling, Waste to energy, Composting this method and give to plan of proper collection system of Vadange village.
