Rapid generation and accumulation of waste in developing countries is due to the increase in development, urbanization, industrialization, poor government policies, and population explosion. Various kinds of waste are produced in the developing countries but due to non-availability of ecofriendly environmental techniques, lack of resources, or the technical expertise, it is becoming difficult to treat the waste at the disposal sites. Most of the waste produced in developing countries is directly disposed to the landfills without any proper sorting and segregation, where it produces greenhouse gases, thus results in global warming. Recycling and composting is helpful in reducing the volume of the waste and producing valuable products which can have multiple applications. Thus, the requirement is to manage the waste by implementing strict laws, increasing awareness, utilization of innovative, as well as latest techniques (global system of mobile, geographical information system) in order to control the growing menace of the solid waste in developing countries.
