An approach towards sustainable city environment: Critical analysis of municipal solid waste management of Pabna municipality of Bangladesh from the perspective of resource recovery and environmental conservation

Description

This study explores the municipal solid waste management of an underdeveloped municipality named Pabna of Bangladesh. Waste generation is increasing with its population and the municipal authority is facing enormous challenges in managing the waste on this low lying piece of land highly vulnerable to seasonal flooding. Leachate contamination and greenhouse gas emission are the prominent environmental concerns. The study suggests manual organic composting as a remedy. Reduction potential of methane (CH4) emission is identified by calculation and evaluation of dumping site CH4 emission. Possible environmental, social and economic benefits including landfill area requirement reduction are also identified.
