Abstract: Solid Waste Management (SWM) is still a global challenge to the 21st Century, and now is on the Universal Agenda. Low income cities in Africa and Asia alone will double their waste generation within 15-20 years (ISWA, 2015). This needs proper handling so as to reduce the impact to the human health and the Environment. This paper presents the review of solid waste management in developing countries and using the city of Dar es Salaam DSM) Tanzania as a case study. There is a huge problem of poor handling of wastes, especial the solid waste collection and disposal in Dar Es Salaam City and other developing countries cities. Indeed it is a high time for DSM and other developing countries to find a way of improving the solid waste collection and disposal by giving priority to the solid waste management sector.
