Abstract

Improper solid waste management causes pollution and health risk, which is a main concern in environmental management in developing countries. In most cities, the use of open dumps is common for the disposal of wastes, resulting in soil and water resource contamination. The research paper surveys the current household Solid Waste Management (SWM) with reference of residents around Kodungaiyur, Chennai and the data were collected through questionnaire format of different household waste generators. Total 200 households were interviewed and the results of the data collection were interpreted with the help of SPSS. The survey indicated that majority of the residents are very much concerned about the poor condition of the environment due to the inappropriate and improper SWM in Chennai Corporation. Very few of the localities are having knowledge about reuse, reprocess, and compost. The residents are not much satisfied with the service of the corporation in regard with SWM. This paper suggests some local effective SWM strategies.
