This paper unfolds by narrating the story of the age old problem of the humankind- management of solid waste. It outlines the various types of solid waste, the various methods of analysis, the importance of the constituents that make up the solid waste and discusses the existing and emerging technologies available to safely and cleverly dispose off the solid waste. The paper discusses a typical solid waste management issue of a sponge iron plant, identifies various sources of generation of solid waste at each stage of the production cycle, defines its constituents, its hazards and identifies options available to manage this kind of waste. The paper talks about the various methods of landfill disposal, identifies the various governing factors for the design and operation of such landfill sites and discusses the performance indicators associated with such sites. This paper winds up with the discussion on the water quality aspects of the region within the vicinity of such sites. It outlines the preventive measures and offers remedial solutions to prevent the underground water reserves locked up in the aquifers.
