Authors

Abstract

Abstract Kerala, the state lying to the south-west corner of India is having a developed modern society occupying a prime position compared to the other states in all human and social development indices. But its Solid Waste Management efforts are not up to the mark. The objectives of the study are to identify the effectiveness of waste collection, treatment and disposal systems in municipalities in Kerala. In the opinion of the respondents majority are getting waste collection services daily. Moreover municipalities are highly involved in waste collection nowadays. Waste collection equipments and technology are superior but in waste treatment it is not upto the mark. Modern waste treatment methods are not popular in municipalities of Kerala and the traditional composting method is the widely used, biomethanation comes next. The matter of concern is that almost two-third of the municipalities in the state is resorting to open dumping without proper landfilling. Now, people of the state are increasingly concerned about the health hazards due to mismanaged solid waste. So the domestic level small scale solid waste treatment techniques like biogas production and composting are getting unexpected momentum in the state. As a concept Integrated Solid Waste Management will find solutions to the manifold problems persisting in Kerala.
