Abstract

Growing population, fast urbanization, rising income, increasing economic activities, changing life style and consumption pattern have been increasing the generation of solid wastes especially in urban areas of India. We assessed the generation and management of household municipal solid waste in the extension and town areas of different socioeconomic classes (low, middle and high income groups) of Tiruvarur during 2004 -2005.
