Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo Loop Management of Solid Waste in Indonesia


Solid waste management, in addition to technical management, is prioritized in community management where urban population densities have grown to levels that induce solid waste management pressures. A reasonable fraction of municipal solid wastes can be recycled at the source or temporary disposal facilities. Composting program for solid waste management is recently intensified in many big cities of Java that promote the use of compost. There is good potential for large-scale composting that needs good compost quality: stable and mature, to improve the management of municipal solid waste. The remaining fraction of solid waste can be managed mostly through disposal in landfills. Following final disposal, biodegradable solid waste is transformed into leachate, which should be treated to prevent negative impact towards living organisms and ecosystem. This monograph is valuable sources for sanitary engineers and other professionals, governments, politicians and other non-government organizations as well as public communities. It is also addressed to students who are preparing for professional careers in solid waste management.

Dutta Jyotisikha Municipal Waste Management In Guwahati City


Guwahati City is facing a serious threat from the growing generation of municipal waste. The performance of municipal waste collection and disposal system in the city has been observed to be very poor. After introduction of Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) programme, the waste scenario is found to be more miserable. In a few places of Guwahati city, some local private bodies provided services of waste collection and disposal in their respective localities in terms of monthly payment before the ISWM programme. But advent of ISWM has created confusion among the beneficiaries regarding the efficiency of services and monthly payment procedure. A study has been made to find out the Willingness to Pay (WTP) of the people of Guwahati city for local private service for waste collection and disposal purposes along with the studies on municipal waste management of the city. A comparative study has also been conducted to find out the preference of the people for both the ISWM.

Adriana Holmberg Milea Waste as a Social Dilemma


In Delhi, as in many other large cities in the developing world, the inappropriate management of municipal solid waste is a significant flaw in the quality of life of its residents and a serious threat to the environment. This book focuses on city residents as waste producers and their role in municipal solid waste management. It argues that the waste problem is caused by human behaviour and therefore the solution lies in changing that behaviour. After examining waste related attitudes and behaviours and the factors influencing these, the book proposes several policy recommendations aiming to reach more environment-friendly and socially equitable conduct. In other words it suggests ways to escape the social dilemma of being buried under one's own trash. Besides making an appealing reading to environmentalists and to anyone interested in social dilemmas and waste management, the book is especially useful for government bodies and NGOs planning interventions for improving solid waste management systems, as well as for all those who believe it is time to place waste at the top of development agendas instead of, yet again, sweeping it under the carpet.

Jacqueline Shirley Open Dumps in Alaska - The Need for Public Health Action


Solid Waste Management is severely deficient in rural Alaska. The majority of rural communities have unpermitted Class III landfills for waste disposal. These unpermitted landfills are commonly known as open dumps. Open dumps increase human health risks by exposure to solid and hazardous materials, including pathogens from human excreta disposed at dump sites due to lack of adequate solid waste, water and sewer facilities. Current federal and state policies lack adequate public health policies or public health actions to address this deficiency. This project analyzed five solid waste management policies that affect rural Alaska and provided three policy options and one public health action recommendation, including: 1. Transferring Authority for Un-permitted Class III Landfills 2. Developing a Statewide Solid Waste Policy 3. Establishing a Solid Waste Fund for Unmet Needs 4. Implementing a Public Health Approach

Muthoni Paul Stakeholder and solid waste


Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) constitute a serious problem in most cities in the developing countries. Most of them do not collect in totality the solid waste generated and from the amount collected only a small fraction is properly disposed. This unsustainable SW handling has acted a source of land, air and water pollution, thus, posing risk to humans and the environment as waste find its way on street, roadside and open fields. Most literatures claim that the increase of waste is as a result of urbanization, economic growth and globalization especially in the developing countries. The situation has led cities to increasingly invest in research, technology, infrastructures improvement and formation of a strong legislation in attempting to refurbish the failing SWM systems. But with the current conventional system of SW approach might not allow these attempts to gain stability. It is for this reason this paper examines decentralized approach effectiveness in solving the SWM problems and further supporting these effort using the city of Nairobi as a case study.

Edward Anomanyo Win by Integrating Solid Waste Management with Bioreactor Treatment


In a lot of communities in developing countries and in Accra Ghana, for that matter, solid waste management is characterized by single method approaches such as collect-and-dump. Lesser social acceptability of dump sites and inadequate operational funding often lead to collapse of these management systems. Solid waste quantities and composition in such communities present an opportunity to plan and operate management strategies that address social, economic and environmental impacts of the waste. Integrating strategies as collection and sorting for recycling, stakeholder (private investors, policy makers/management and the public) involvement and bioreactor treatment will yield optimum benefits to operational funds, clean environment and to society; a win-win-win scenario that must be appealing to policy makers and investors.
