Abstract

Solid waste management is a big challenge throughout the world. It is becoming more complicated with the increased globalization and worldwide urbanization. Solid waste monitoring and management depends on the solid waste generation and collection efficiency. Without an efficient collection system, improvement of the solid waste monitoring and management system is a difficult task. Thus, it is a big hindrance on the way of development of solid waste management and sustainable environment. This paper deals with a comprehensive survey on the solid waste generation and their collection efficiencies. From the rigorous review, it is observed that the existing methods and system, however, not reliable and intelligent enough to monitor and manage the increased level of solid waste. Accordingly, this review is being highlighted on the issues and challenges for future efficient solid collection systems. This review paper may guide the reader about the basics of solid waste generation and their collection process to facilitate the planning and design of a sustainable new system.
