Abstract :

Nagpur is second political city of Maharashtra having population 28,07,007. The city generates about 905 TPD of MSW. Due to urbanization, industrialization ad educational hub Nagpur is one of the fastest growing cities in Maharashtra. There is no arrangement for segregation of waste at source. The collection and transportation of MSW is carried out by the combination of municipal and private vehicles. A windrow composting plant of 800 TPD capacities is installed. Unscientific open dumping, threats of environmental pollution, absence of landfill gas (FLG) monitoring facilities are the most important hurdles for the city. There is an urgent need of source segregation, optimized transport facilities, LFG monitoring and improvement of plant processing capacity.
