Waste Management System


This report explains how Pourshava, Bangladesh, currently manages its waste. The management system in place is shown. Trash is sometimes put in wrong places. But, most of it is put in correct places. People come and take the trash from the correct places. The trash is kept in containers until it’s taken away by these people. It’s done this way, using a proper method.

The part of Pourashava that takes care of trash picks it up from storage and brings it to a special place. We did a study at Ross Camp to see how much trash there was and what kind of trash it was. This study looked at how much trash 483 people in 77 houses made each week.

The research looked at the different kinds of garbage, the containers used to hold it, and if people divided it up to recycle it. This study was crucial to understanding the characteristics of domestic litter.

Data collection:

The aim of this study was to create a waste management model for Pourashava. To achieve this, we conducted a thorough review of existing literature on waste management models, along with information related to environmental regulations regarding the management of domestic litter. The information gathered served as a valuable resource in designing an integrated solid litter management system, which we believe will offer an effective solution for the region. Our team is confident that our findings will be of great benefit to those involved in waste management, as we have compiled a comprehensive set of recommendations to help improve the current state of litter management in the area.


The researcher conducted tours in several locations throughout Pourashava, where they observed some concerning trends regarding litter disposal. I saw some people throwing away their garbage in the bins that were close by. Some people put their garbage in the bins nearby. It was also noted that some households in low-density areas had litter receptacles available, although there were concerns regarding regular collection and time management by the Pourashava councils.

During these tours, the researcher collected pertinent notes and photographs to depict the physical characteristics and interesting attributes of the areas. When we thought of the system, we realized that litter comes from many different places and can be different types depending on where it comes from. In Pourashava specifically, these sources include residential areas, industries, commercial areas, institutions, farms, and construction companies. However, the primary focus will be on litter originating from residential areas, which can be further categorized as domestic, industrial, toxic, biodegradable, and other types.


There are rules for how to deal with different kinds of garbage. You need to handle, keep, and move them properly. You can easily sort different types of waste by placing the right waste bins in the right places. Proper storage and collection techniques tailored to each type of waste provide a more efficient and effective waste management system.

The waste department of the Pourashava is responsible for waste management and must comply with environmental management acts and Pourashava by-laws. The rules say we have to use a specific model that follows the regulations. The Pourashava council needs to follow all the rules for managing waste in the environment. If they don’t, they might break the law.

This model serves as a practical tool for understanding waste management, and the characterization of different waste types makes waste recovery easier by eliminating the need for waste separation. Its unique features provide a comprehensive approach to waste management.

  • The type of litter generator
  • The type of litter receptacle
  • The type of collection method
  • The type of transportation
  • The type of disposal method pertaining to a litter type.

This model incorporates performance measurements for litter collection as part of its litter management framework. This statement illustrates the EMA’s clarity and the comprehensive nature of their litter management procedures. By accounting for and assessing all facets of the process, the EMA guarantees a thorough approach to managing litter.

Strengths of the waste management model:

  • In this model, BCC follows the rules of EMA policies and Pourashava by-laws, showing their dedication to managing litter efficiently. Good performance management is important for achieving this goal.
  • Effective performance management plays a crucial role in ensuring efficient litter management practices. With this in mind, our system has been thoughtfully crafted to incorporate a performance management aspect specifically tailored towards optimizing litter collection.
  • Understanding the various categories of litter is crucial in this system because it assigns litter receptacles, collection methods, transportation methods, and disposal methods based on litter type. This approach has proven to be highly efficient.
