Distinctive waste management techniques can possibly decrease the amount of MSW disposed in landfill. In present study field characterization of MSW for 40 locations/ areas as a representative of the selected 40 wards in SDMC has been done. A feasibility analysis has been done on a community based box type compost plant of 2 ton /day capacity and plant has been design and proposed to treat generated solid waste for studied areas of SDMC. It has been computed, if total municipal solid waste is treated in community based decentralized plants then total compost produces about 126 tons for all 40 selected locations. Further it generates revenue of about Rs. 123412 in total for all studied wards. It has been also calculated, if required compost plants have been installed in each ward then one time collection not more than INR 62.00/person is required to install all required number of compost plants in each ward. To operate these compost plants, monthly contribution of about INR 10.00/ person is required.
