Solid waste management (SWM) is a significant public health and environmental concern in many cities of the developing countries. As a whole, solid waste arising from human activity can cause extensive environmental pollution and risks to human health.

From the last decade, in many cities of Nepal including Kathmandu valley, it is a big challenge to manage in SWM due to the high population density and change in consumer behavior that produces more waste. Increasing urbanization and poor waste management system has negative impact both on environment and human life.
