Uncontrolled growth of the urban population in developing countries in recent years has made solid waste management an important issue, so the system for collection of solid waste thus constitutes an important component of an effective solid waste management system. In present study describes an attempt is made to design and develop an appropriate collection plan by Geographical Information System (GIS) software for the Laxmi Nagar at Nagpur, a Orange city in Maharashtra, India. A GIS optimal routing model was designed for efficient collection path for municipal solid waste to minimum time, labor, distance efficient collection paths for the solid wastes. A present study is also aimed to proposed location of community BIN. The total cost of the proposed collection systems is estimated to be around 3, 52,225 rupees for the annual operating cost of municipal solid waste collection. A substantial amount 4, 03,200 rupees is currently being spent by Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC)on waste collection alone without any proper storage/collection system.
