ABSTRACT:
Waste management includes reduction of the generation of solid waste, regular collection of waste, segregation of waste, transportation of waste and utilization of solid waste rather than concentrating only on disposal of waste like land filling. In recent days waste management is not only the problems of urban local self-governments; it is the challenge to the rural local self-governments also. In rural and urban areas generation of waste is one of the major problems. This study mainly concentrated on collection and segregation of solid wastes. In my study I found that most of the waste related problems can be solved through regular collection of wastes and segregation of wastes at various stages i.e., from the primary sources to storage sites. Waste segregation saves time, transport costs and also helps to preserve and conserve natural resources. Once solid wastes are segregated at source as degradable and non-degradable, major problem of waste management would be solved. Local institutions should make proper arrangements in order to segregate the wastes and collection of wastes in the entire village. Besides this each individual should take the initiative in practicing segregation of waste at source.
