Abstract: Solid waste is produced from multiple sources such as households, hospitals, industries, offices and markets. In this current century, solid waste management is one of the major issues which effect health, climate, food and resources. Thus a place like India, need to have better solid waste management techniques. To overcome these waste management issues, Indian government initiated “SWATCHH BHARAT” program. Recently united A.P has been divided into two states Telangana and Andhra Pradesh due to bifurcation leading Amravathi as new capital to A.P. Due to this, there is a drastic increase of population in Vijayawada. This current study researches on solid waste management techniques and site selection for solid waste management in Vijayawada. Waste generated from Vijayawada has been dumping in Pathapadu dump yard unscientifically where it is also insufficient due to sudden growth of population. Keeping these issues in view the disposal site selection with in 10km buffer zone is taken. By using RS and GIS, different thematic layers are prepared based on the requirement from satellite imaging of Vijayawada city. By integrating and applying Analytical hierarchy process (AHP) process to these spatial and attribute data efficient landfill site is selected scientifically along with identifying solid waste transportation path with best and affordable management strategies for proper utilization of municipal solid waste and management of natural resources for sustainable development. This type of study can be applied and implemented for any study area globally.
