Abstract

Now a day, we are facing a problem regarding the management of waste generated daily. This waste includes solid waste from industrial zone, commercial zone and residential zone. Among all these waste management from residential zone requires first priority because if this waste is not properly disposed off daily, then it will create problems to public health, affects the aesthetics. This paper gives the present status of solid waste management on dumping ground in Mumbai region and also suggests some methods to control the same. Urgent steps in this direction will reduce the water, air, soil pollutions and health hazards.
