Abstract

Solid waste management system is a global concern today. As sustainable management of the environment is necessary to keep a safe and livable world for the next generation, the continuous process of environmental degradation must be stopped or at least minimized immediately. Improperly managed or unmanaged solid waste can create adverse impact on environment through air pollution, water pollution, land contamination etc. It is really a serious threat to the environment. In order to minimize the impact, environmental consideration is incorporated in solid waste management system in developed countries but it is a new practice in developing countries. This paper examines a GIS based location finding approaches combined with multi-criteria evaluation for solid waste dumping for Khulna city in Bangladesh. It attempts to develop a methodology that can be applied in finding suitable sites for solid waste disposal for most of the major cities.
