The main features of the book are as follows:
1.The book discusses solid waste management at various scales like landfill sites, power plants, hill spots, city/urban waste, municipalities, lab waste, biomedical waste and so on.
2.Perspectives from reusability, community participation, groundwater contamination, sustainability etc. have been built in the various chapters.
3.State-of-the-art methods of waste disposal have been discussed.
4.Many real-life cases have been presented from which valuable lessons can be taken.
