Abstract: Solid waste management is all about every city government provides safety sanitation of waste for its resident’s, and municipal authorities are responsible for such service. While service levels environmental impacts and costs vary dramatically from different cities, however, in India it is one of the worthless services, since the authorities apply unscientific outdated and inefficient system to collect and dispose of the solid waste causing hazardous to its inhabitants. The various study reveals that about 90%of solid waste is disposed unscientifically. The present municipal laws are inadequate for the provisions of disposal of Municipal solid waste. The current situation is becoming more critical with the rapid urbanisation. The segregation and the sorting are done in an unorganised sector. If the separation and the sorting are done efficiently the yield of recycling materials will be high. The MSW disposal is possible with low cost through smart compression and transporting techniques. The present study deals with the detailed study of solid waste management of Salem city Tamil Nadu India which has 91.34sqkm area and 8,34,792 population as per 2011 census.
