Solid Waste Management:

The Municipalities within the region are facing huge problems regarding their various Infrastructural services. In the last century up to 70’s the amount of solid wastes generated in this Municipal area were simply thrown in the nearby water bodies and vacant lands. The type of these wastes was mainly Organic i.e. easily degradable. Solid wastes collected from Markets were used to be dumped for filling up the low-lying areas.

However, gradually with the increase in population, the quantity of generated wastes increased at an alarming rate. With it came the non- biodegradable materials like plastics since 1980. To keep the environment clean, vats at different locations, dustbins, handcarts etc. came into existence. People objected this system of vats as those created environmental nuisance in case of irregular clearance. Municipality is planning to collect waste from doorsteps and directly dumped in the landfill site.

Door-to-door daily waste collection system has been introduced in four wards namely, Ward Nos. 6,7,8,& 9.

In Basirhat Municipality, the quantity of solid waste generated per capita per day was 75 grams. The quantity of solid waste generated per day was 8 Metric Tons. The quantity of solid waste collected per day was 8 Metric Tons.

As per UDPFI Guidelines, the generation of waste varies from about a quarter of kilogram in small towns to about half a kilogram per capita in large and metro cities. Solid Waste Generation projection
