India is a country enriched by successive waves of migrations, invasions and marauders from distant lands, every one of them left a cultural imprint on the Indian society which was absorbed by the Indian way of life. India is one of the largest democracies in the world with various cultural diversities and heritage. Here culture is the definition of everything. India is a land of 29 states, 9 union territories united with each other. India generates about 277.1 million tonnes of waste annually according to world bank report. Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai are the main contributors to the total waste generated. The Jalgaon City Municipal Corporation is responsible for collection, disposal and management of MSW within the city. Due to rapid urbanization and increase in population waste collection and its transportation and disposal is a challenging task to the urban local bodies. No specific land was reserved for compost depot in the sanctioned development plan of the old city limits. The waste generated is disposed in an unscientific manner. The manpower and transport system is inadequate for the waste management of the city.
