Gurugram, amongst the largest metropolitan city in India, generates 500-600 tons of waste per day. It is the responsibility of the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram and private players to provide Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) management services, however, increase in waste is becoming beyond their ability. As a result of which waste litters all over the places giving rise to health and environmental problems. Hence, there is an urgent need to involve larger contribution from private sector and community participation in waste management. Solid Waste Management (SWM) is a set of consistent and systematic regulations related to control generation, storage, collection, processing and land filling of wastes according to the best public health principles, economy, preservation of resources, aesthetics, other environmental requirements and what the public attends to. Many countries are continuously facing problems in managing solid waste and need comprehensive and practical solutions. Therefore, the optimization conditions for sustainable approach to SWM are a key factor for managers and planners. Currently, the planners and decision-makers in the area of integrated solid waste management are confronting increased complexity uncertainty and multi-objectivity of this issue. At the beginning, the process of decision-making on SWM was simple. It is because of the decisions were made only through simple comparison of some options out of the available options.
