Abstract :

Analyzed the individual household waste disposal strategies followed in different areas of Salem. To determine the solid waste generated in households of different areas of Salem by surveying. For surveying, a Structured Questionnaire is prepared which interrogate about types of waste generated, amount of waste generated in a home per day and disposal methods, whether compost pit exist or not. This survey is taken for 15 different areas of Salem. Thus by surveying we came to know different types of wastes and various disposal methods employed in those areas. The various disposal methods observed by us are door to door collection (effective and ineffective), community bin collection, dumping, and backyard burning, throwing and recycling. Then per capita waste generation and average daily household solid waste generation are calculated using values obtained from surveying by questionnaire. The impact potential for various areas of Salem is calculated using disposal strategy and the classes are made as A, B, C, D, E, and F. From our project and survey we observed that disposal methods followed in most of the places are non technical and ineffective and awareness is to be spread among people to employ proper disposal techniques.
