    Sheth Jil, Omprakash U Patil*

    As per municipal acts governing the local bodies in the country, it is an obligatory duty of municipal authorities in the country to keep cities/towns clean and provide a good quality of life to the citizens. However, the services provided by the municipal authorities are outdated and very inefficient. Domestic, commercial, biomedical and variety of toxic and domestic hazardous wastes are generally disposed of by the citizens on the streets, drains, open spaces, water bodies etc., causing serious problems of health and environment. Problems of solid waste management are growing with rapid urbanization and change in the lifestyle of the people. The situation is becoming critical with the passage of time. The research aims to critically assess the current scenario of Municipal Solid Waste Management (MSWM) system and studying feasibility for technological alternatives based on case study approach.
