     Problems of MSW Management in
• Overflowing Community Bins
• Waste littering in many places
• Waste Management services not satisfactory
• Institutional deficiencies (Problem of Governance)
   – Lack of coordination between different departments for
     MSW management services.
   – Low Productivity of solid waste management staff
• Lack of public participation
 Possible Environmental Impact of Waste

• Open dumping:
      • Degradation of land resources
      • Health Impacts
      • Contamination of surface and groundwater supplies

• Open burning: Urban air pollution

• Decomposition of organic wastes: release of
  methane which contributes to greenhouse effect.
