Rapid population growth, Urbanization, industrialization and lack of awareness among people are the major drawbacks for enormous quantities of solid waste generation. An attempt has been made to comprehensively review waste characteristics, generation, collection, transportation, treatment & safe disposal methods of MSW practiced in Hyderabad City. Daywise activities pertaining to MSW have been carried out in order to evaluate the present existing status & to identify the major problems pertaining to it.
