Solid Waste Management
Solid Waste Management (SWM) is a major challenge in urban areas across the world. Without an effective and efficient solid waste management program, the waste generated from various human activities, both industrial and domestic, can result in health hazards with negative impacts on the environment. Understanding the waste generated, the availability of resources, and the environmental conditions of a society are important for developing an appropriate waste-management system. Thus, solid waste management includes all administrative, financial, legal, planning and engineering functions involved in solutions to all problems related to solid waste management. The solutions may involve complex interdisciplinary relationships among fields such as political science, city and regional planning, geography, economics, public health, sociology, demography, communications and conservation as well as engineering and material sciences.
The Solid Waste Management team at the Urban Unit comprises of waste management specialists and experts trained from the most competitive institutions of the world. At the Urban Unit, we believe that it is imperative to provide sustenance to human and environmental health so the organization emphasizes on sustainable and efficient waste management practices. While establishing plans, policies and provisions we aim at preserving a balanced approach among environmental, economic and community needs, with a special focus on cost effective, efficient and innovative SWM solutions.
