G. M. Jahid Hasan and Md. Aktarul Islam Chowdhury

Abstract:
Municipal solid waste becomes serious environmental hazard and social problem in Bangladesh. Currently a gigantic volume of solid waste is generated every day in the district towns of Bangladesh and unfortunately solid waste management is being deteriorated day by day due to the limited resources to handle the increasing rate of generated waste. In order to check the waste management situation, a detailed survey in different cities of Bangladesh has been done in this study. Although a significant amount of municipal waste is collected by community based organizations, conservancy wings of the cities can not dispose more than 50% of the generated wastes. This study reflects the adverse impacts of pollution through solid waste and deteriorating situation of municipal solid waste management in capital city Dhaka, divisional city Sylhet, greater district town Tangail and Rangamati and new district town Gazipur.
