rural waste managment:
When economies go after indiscriminate market-based growth and the people go after a consumerist culture, the apparent side-effect is ‘unmanageable waste generation’. There was a time that this was considered as a phenomenon of the West; and later of the cities of the fast emerging economies; and currently it is everywhere including the villages in India. The villages in general and those on the periphery of cities and towns in particular are at the frontline as far as indiscriminate and unmanageable waste generation is concerned. The concern is that at the end of the day, all the garbage falls on the lap of the Gram Panchayat (GP) to clean it up. ‘Sanitation and street cleaning’ is one of the basic functions of a Gram Panchayat, and they should make arrangements for attending to it. 

urban waste management:
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is more commonly known as trash or garbage. MSW includes   commercial and residential wastes generated in municipal or notified areas in either solid or semi-solid form excluding industrial hazardous wastes but including treated bio-medical wastes.  It consists of household waste, wastes from hotels and restaurants, construction and demolition debris, sanitation residue, and waste from streets.
