Abstract


Every citizen should be made aware of the duty to keep neighborhoods and city clean. Creation of awareness is the first step to bring an attitudinal change among people. Most of the people are ignorant about the various ways in which waste can be stored, transported and safely disposed and also about their ill effects to health and environment. Therefore it is necessary, to create awareness among the people about the entire process of Municipal Solid Waste Management system i.e. from generation to safe disposal. Waste comprises of 3 different categories wet waste (vegetable peels, food waste etc), dry (paper, plastic, metal etc) waste and toxic waste (batteries, CFLs etc). Source segregation of waste into different categories and its effective collection system is the key to success in MSWM system, and the role of common man as a responsible citizen is very crucial in implementing effective and efficient system.
