      B.Shoba, Dr.K.Rasappan
Abstract: Solid waste management is the one of the major problem faced by today world. There is an increase in commercial, residential and infrastructure development due to the population growth and it leads to negative impact on the environment. Urban solid waste management is considered as one of the most tedious environmental problems facing by municipal authorities in developing countries. Rapid urbanization coupled with increasing industrial, commercial and economic development, have given rise to an increased generation of various types of waste. The amount of waste generation rates is coupled with socio-economic development, degree of industrialisation and climate. Generally, the greater the economic growth and higher the percentage of urban population, the greater amount of solid waste is produced. In recent years, the management of solid waste continues to be one of the major issues facing municipal planners due to increased population levels. Planners are thus forced to consider alternate and available means of disposal, especially by minimizing damage to the ecosystem and human population. GIS has proved to be a boon to such planners by visualizing the real solid waste situations and facilitating route analysis through mapping. Based on the above focus, the present study focuses mapping the waste generation of Coimbatore urban area and on suggesting convenient and administratively transparent solutions to the waste disposal problem.
