Abstract

Studies on solid waste management was carried out at Karimnagar a model town , which is 168 kilometers away from Hyderabad city ,with a population of 4 ,10,000. The area of the town is 26 sq. kms. The town is an important business centre. The study was carried out for one calendar year that is 2013. The work is a humble beginning to study the solid waste focusing on domestic waste or organic waste related to degradable products and non degradable recyclable wastes in commercial area or market yards. There are nearly 60 slums in the city. The solid wastes are collected on an average of 145 to 160 metric tons per day manually, and from where the degradable and non degradable material was separated, the degradable wastes are sent to the compost yard and the non degradable material will be sent to recycling industries. Urbanization leads to public health and environment concern not only in the developed countries but also in the underdeveloped countries. With regard to the underdeveloped countries there is no proper waste collection and disposable system.
