SNEHA SWARUP, USHA VERMA AND RAVISH KUMAR

Abstract

In Patna the solid waste has become an integral part of man’s day –to-day activities. The rapid population growth and urbanization has given rise to the total quantity of waste generation of Patna (M. Corp). According to Patna, City Development Plan (CDP- 2010-31) report about 65% of the total waste generated in Patna Municipal Corporation is collected and rest 35% of waste remains unattended. The report of Patna Master Plan 2031, states that only 60% of total collected waste is transported to primary disposal sites on day to day basis. A major part of waste remains unattended in Patna (Patna Municipal Corporation) due to the inefficient solid waste disposal strategy of PMC, leading to various problems related to human health hazard, environmental pollution and thus un-stabilizing the urban ecosystem of the Patna (Patna Municipal Corporation). This study is an attempt to assess the solid waste management strategies implemented in Patna (Patna Municipal Corporation), Bihar, India. The objectives of the present research work are - to identify the sources and areas of solid waste generation; problems related to solid waste disposal and to assess the awareness among people regarding solid waste management strategy with civic sense. An appraisal of existing solid waste management system of Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) drives researcher to suggest some measures for a sustainable solid waste management system. The existing management tries its best to sort out the emerging issues related to SWM to some extent, but in some areas present management system has failed to solve the growing environmental threat in the city.
