The state is therefore, facing the challenge of providing essential features to under control the hazardous waste management. In Tamil Nadu, Coimbatore district is well known for agricultural, business and industrial sectors. As a result heavy solid waste is generated and accumulated every year. In Karamadai area because of solid waste ground waste is affected up to 4Kms within the surroundings, The soil stability gets decreases. In order to reduce harms causing due to solid waste in this area , a project has been done. solid waste generated and collected per day is 50 to 80 tonnes. Solid waste consists of both bio degradable and non-bio degradable. Bio degradable solid waste are collected by door-to-door, primary, secondary
