Abstract

INITIAL CHARACTERIZATION OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE OF DIBRUGARH MUNICIPAL WASTE DUMPING SITE IN ASSAM, INDIA

Dr. Shampa Deb*, Jonali Saikia and Ajay S. Kalamdhad

ABSTRACT

Municipal Waste Management is one of the most challenging issues now a days due to lack of authentic data on different elements of Solid waste, namely, storage, collection, transportation, separation, processing and disposal. This study present an assessment of existing status of waste generation rate in conjunction with physical and chemical characterization. The collected MSW included biodegradables (organic fraction), paper, plastic, glass, ceramics, metals, inert materials, ash and debris. The data analysis indicated that the biodegradable components dominate the characterization at 39.56-41.95% followed by glass and ceramics (10.09%-11.40%). pH value of the waste was neutral 6.02-7.31 which coupled with high value of electrical conductivity. Organic waste, ash, plastic and paper are also the main heavy metal sources of MSW which accounted for 1128.60 mg/kg and 552.78 mg/kg contribution of the Fe and Cu. Much more attention should be paid on the MSW management to avoid heavy metal pollution.
