Abstract: Solid waste is a very common term used nowadays in the context of environmental problem. The use of conventional and non-renewable energy reserves causes huge amount of solid waste. In addition to this, rapid urbanization and population explosion cause the prob­lem more acute than ever before. Huge tonnes of solid waste are generated in urban areas specially in the indus­trial and metropolitan city. In rural areas also it is increas­ing day by day. A grim situation is ahead in near future due to disposal of solid waste and environmental pollu­tion. This is going to affect the quality of life in several ways if proper measures are not taken. The composition of solid waste depends on the population of cities, standard of living which changes with time. They usually contain the ingredients like bio­degradable, paper, plastics, glass and crockery, metals, coals, inerts and others.
