Solid waste management (SWM) is a major problemfor many urban local bodies (ULBs) in India, where urbanization, industrialization, and economic growth have resulted in increased municipal solid waste (MSW)generation per person [1]. Effective SWM is a major challenge in citieswith high population density.Achieving sustainable development within a country experiencing rapid population growth and improvements in living standards is made more difficult in India because it is a diverse country with many differentreligious groups, cultures, and traditions. Despite significant development in social, economic, and environmental areas, SWM systemsin India have remained relatively unchanged. The informalsector has a key role in extracting value from waste, with approximately 90% of residualwaste currently dumped rather than properly landfilled [2].
