Chapter I - Introduction, Chapter II - Solid Waste Management: An Overview, Chapter III - Conceptual and Theoretical Frameworks, Chapter IV - Environmental Analysis With Special Reference to Waste Management, Chapter V - Residential Waste Management in Town Panchayat: Micro Level Analysis, Chapter VI - Findings, Suggestions and Conclusion. Solid Waste Management is a worldwide phenomenon. Improper management of solid waste causes hazards to inhabitants and residents and affects the wealth and health of “Mother Earth”. Global evidences show that, the death rate from improper management of solid waste results in 9 per 1000 of population. Financial constraints prevent the local governments, starting from metro-cities to village panchayat, from creating a proper waste collection and disposal mechanism. Therefore, waste generated by the local governments is inadequately and poorly managed in many countries of the world. Most cities, towns, small towns and villages, do not collect the totality of waste generated and of the waste collected, only a fraction receives proper disposal. Thus, waste management is becoming a major health and environmental concern in urban, semi-urban and even rural areas of many developing countries. Waste management is given very low priorities in the developing countries whose budgetary provision is too small to manage the solid waste. Changing life styles and moving towards cosumeristic society pose waste management challenges, as waste management systems in developing countries are incapable of frequent adjustment to match these life style changes. Waste (solid/liquid/gaseous) is a direct consequence of all human activities. Management of solid waste is a discipline associated with the principles of public health, economics, engineering, and conservation. Scientific management of waste involves seven important steps viz., segregation and storage of waste at source, primary collection, street sweeping, secondary storage, transportation, treatment and recycling and finally disposal of waste in a saleable manner. Rapid urbanization coupled with modernization has led to several fold increases in the generation of wastes, like household waste, commercial waste, industrial waste, construction waste, agriculture waste, sewage waste, wastes from mining and quarrying, bio-medical waste, radioactive waste and e-waste. Since, solid waste is a global phenomenon, the economies of the globe, particularly developing economies, are expressing anxiety on the adverse effects of increasing quantum of solid waste and taking initiatives to adopt Integrated Solid Waste Management System with a view to reducing the harmful characteristics of solid waste produced by different economic sectors. Generation of household waste is an unavoidable result of many activities of modern civilization. With these backgrounds, an attempt has been made by the author to study the solid waste management by the residents of Chinnalapatti Town Panchayat in Dindigul District, Tamil Nadu with the following objectives such as: to study the socio-economic conditions of the residents of Chinnalapatti Town Panchayat; to identify the factors that determine the generation of wastes by the residents of Chinnalapatti Town Panchayat; to estimate the quantity and types of wastes generated by the residents of Chinnalapatti Town Panchayat; and to suggest sustainable strategies and policies for effective management of wastes in Chinnalapatti Town Panchayat. The proposed study is basically empirical in nature and based on primary data, collected through household’s survey, interview and discussion with the residents in the study area. According to 2011 Census, Chinnalapatti Town Panchayat has 8024 residents who are living in 18 wards with four zones viz., East, West, South and North. Further, author has applied proportionate random sampling technique and finally chosen 501 samples of residents for the purpose of present research investigation.

In this study, a pilot project was conducted to evaluate the effects of women's intervention in environmental management in a typical rural cluster in Lebanon. The study revealed that women are aware of environmental problems in their villages and are ready to help and participate in resolving them. In this context, women from Mount Lebanon expressed willingness to engage in a solid waste reduction program that consists of recycling paper and composting the organic fraction of kitchen waste. Women participated in the study effectively and adopted a solid waste management/ reduction program in which they separated paper, plastics and cans from the waste--stream to be recycled and composted the organic fraction. The compost was of acceptable quality and was used on plants and greeneries.

Abstract: This chapter intends to draw attention to solid waste management sector toward rural areas where bad practices and public health threats could be avoided through traditional and integrated waste management routes. The expansion of waste collection services across rural municipalities should be a priority for many countries. Agricultural and municipal waste diversion from wild dumps and open burning practices must be avoided through smart solutions at the local level which are cost-efficient particularly in developing countries. The book further examines, on the one hand, the main challenges in the development of reliable waste management practices across rural regions and, on the other hand, the concrete solutions and the new opportunities across the world in dealing with rural solid waste

Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC) launched by Government of India has been the cornerstone of a decentralized, incentive based approach to achieve rural sanitation objectives. The scheme has developed strategic components to ensure coverage of sanitation facilities through financial and programmatic support for households, and for institutional and community sanitation. Construction of toilets needs to be complemented with mechanisms of waste handling to ensure a safe and hygienic environment in the rural areas. Safe disposal of solid and liquid waste is a major step on the sanitation ladder where communities have begun to successfully tackle. Government at present has specific provision for solid and liquid waste management (SLWM) as an important component under TSC. The Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation has been continuously updating technical notes on rural sanitation to reinforce the quality of interventions. The Hand Book on scaling up solid and liquid waste management in rural areas gives a very useful insight on the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of SLWM units in a sustainable way. The effort has been to make a comprehensive document that is user friendly for planning and executing agencies.

This book focuses on waste management which is the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, aesthetics or amenity. Waste management is also carried out to reduce the materials' effect on the environment and to recover resources from them. Waste management can involve solid, liquid or gaseous substances, with different methods and fields of expertise for each. Waste management practices differ for developed and developing nations, for urban and rural areas, and for residential and industrial, producers. Management for non-hazardous residential and institutional waste in metropolitan areas is usually the responsibility of local government authorities, while management for non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste is usually the responsibility of the generator.
