Solid waste is the continually growing problem and government of India is searching new innovations to dispose it safely so that it won't become harmful to human health. This paper presents the case study of Current disposing methods and future plans of Management of solid waste in Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation. This management reflects the immense efforts of PCMC to dispose of the waste effectively. Due to enhanced economic activities and growing population management of municipal solid waste has become an acute problem. Therefore PCMC is giving more attention to dispose this solid waste in most hygienic and safe manner. It is estimated that PCMC generates about 650 tons of waste per day. Currently it is being collected, transported and disposed at Moshi, where combustible material and refuse derived fuel is manufactured. PCMC was planning to decentralise the waste management system and has decided to take its garbage disposal plans to new 23 hectared land in punawale. The transport of waste will be divided in 2 zones. Zone A (moshi, nigdi,akurdi, chinchwad, and others) and zone B (pimpri, chinchwadgoan, ravet, punawale, tathawade and others.). This will also reduce transportation cost. Citation: Rutuja Garud, PIMPRI CHINCHWAD POLYTECHNIC; Vijeta Kundalikar ,PIMPRI CHINCHWAD POLYTECHNIC; Ashlesha Tapkir ,PIMPRI CHINCHWAD POLYTECHNIC.
