This paper provides the reader with an understanding of the types of solid waste, disposal methods and its advantages and disadvantages as well as available technologies such as ISWM, WTE and Thermolysis solid waste processing with the aim of raising awareness that technology is available. to reduce untreated waste disposal in a manner that is not detrimental to public health. According to the Ministry of Environment, of the Government of India 75-80% of municipal waste is collected but only 22-28% of this waste is collected , processed and treated It is projected that "Garbage generation will increase from 62 million tons to 165 million tons by 2030," It is, therefore, imperative to mention that there is a need to raise awareness and that there is still much to be done in waste management so that the amount of waste processed or treated in the country increases from 22- 28% to at least 70% by 2030. SYNOPSIS:- According to the Ministry of Environmental & Forests (1) it is estimated that 62 million tons of solid waste are generated annually in the country where only 22-28% of this waste is processed in an environmentally friendly manner. The rest goes to the garbage dump. Declaration In order to successfully achieve a high percentage of solid waste processing, solid waste classification needs to be done. Non-perishable waste can be used to make compost or fuel to remove waste from the Power Plants or to fill the gas thus reducing solid waste sent to the landfill. Hazardous waste such as plastic, waste rubber, debris and medical waste can also be processed using a thermolysis / Plasma process [1] to convert this waste into oil / gas.
