Case Study // Waste Management in Nagpur, India

By Martin Schaub and Jérémie Bertrand. This case study develops an economically feasible solution to implement an integrated waste management system for the city of Nagpur, India. With a population of 2.4 million (census 2011), the city is currently generating an average of 1100-1200 tonnes of waste per day.

Nagpur is the third largest city in the state of Maharashtra after Mumbai and Pune and is the largest city in central India. With a population of 2.4 million (census 2011), the city is currently generating an average of 1100-1200 tonnes of waste per day. Despite being a progressive urban local body, the city needs lot of focus and considerable improvement on waste management. The GIZ Urban Nexus Project and Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) agreed to study the solid waste management problem in detail and in an integrated manner to come up with an economically feasible solution for implementation. This study of the integrated waste management system for Nagpur was conducted along with a detailed waste characterisation of municipal solid waste.
