Solid Waste and Waste Water Management Services:

Solid waste management is one of the major challenges that cities in developing countries are facing. Municipal solid waste (MSW) is a critical environmental issue in urban areas. Not only does it affect the  atmosphere and health but its improper management impedes attempts to keep cities clean and devoid of health hazards. On the other hand, MSW management activities such as composting, combustion and landfills release greenhouse gases such as methane, nitrous oxide, and carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. In addition, unmanaged waste could clog the drainage system, which would in turn contribute to flooding and water logging in urban areas during the rainy season.

The population of Mingora increased from 38499 in 1972 to approximately over 0.200 million in 2010. Now the total population of Tehsil is 0.6 M coming under the jurisdiction of WSSC for waste management, this necessitates the development of a master plan for disposal of liquid and solid waste for the city.

For the very first time WSSC took waste management with integrated approach and identifies that collection, transportation, treatment, and disposal of waste, together with monitoring and regulation of the waste management process are all essential stages. Lacking in any stage will result in improper disposal of municipal solid waste, which can create conditions that can in turn lead to pollution of the environment and to outbreaks of vector-borne disease.
