ABSTRACT
This paper presents an assessment of the existing situation of municipal solid waste management (MSWM) in Bahraich City. The quantity and composition of MSW vary from place to place, and bear a rather consistant correlation with the average standard of living. Field investigations were carried out for quantification, analysis of physico-chemical composition and characterization in disposal site. Studies carried out in these places have revealed that there were many shortcomings in the existing practices used in managing the MSW. These shortcomings pertain mainly to indequate manpower, financial resources, implements and machinery required for effectively carrying out various activities for MSWM. Various adopted treatment technologies for MSW were critically reviewed, alongwith their advantage and limitations. The study was concluded with a few fruitful suggestions, which may be beneficial to encourage the competent authorities/researchers to work towards further improvement in the present system.

Key words :Municipal solid waste, Organic matter, Waste characterization.
