Abstract: This thesis sets out to demonstrate to city managers, planners, consultants and industrialists how the solid waste management techniques of the developed nations should be adapted to meet the needs of the big cities and towns in their countries. It emphasises that as these countries become industrialised there is much they can learn from the mistakes made in developed countries. The thesis seeks to demonstrate that being poor does not by definition mean dirty and that there are solutions that will work at every level of available resources and expertise. The thesis cautions against the indiscriminate application of Western technology but rather its careful adaption to the different circumstances of the developing world.
