Vijay Kant Singh, Praveen Solanki, Arkendu Ghosh, Apurba Pal

Solid waste is consolidated materials from a wastewater and water supply treatment plant, garbage, refuse, and discarded materials from mining, agricultural operations, industries, and community activities. Several types of solid wastes are produced such as agricultural wastes, municipal wastes, industrial waste, mining waste, nuclear waste, medical waste, etc. Management and proper reuse of solid waste are very important for sustaining and maintaining the entire bio-geo-ecosystem. This chapter mainly focuses on solid waste, its types, various sources, and disposal technologies used for proper management of solid waste.
