Collection of Solid Wastes

Collection of Solid Wastes and separated waste in an urban area is difficult and complex because the generation of residential and commercial-industrial solid waste takes place in every home, every apartment building, and every commercial and industrial facility as well as in the streets, parks, and even vacant areas.

Functional Elements of Solid Waste Management System

A comprehensive solid waste management system comprises of six basic functional elements including generation of the solid waste, on-site handling & storage, its collection, transfer & transport, material and resource recovery and disposal. Generation of solid waste is a result of natural, human and animal activities. Knowledge of generation of solid

Types of Solid Wastes - Based on Origin and Composition

Solid wastes are the organic and inorganic waste materials such as product packaging, grass clippings, furniture, clothing, bottles, kitchen refuse, paper, appliances, paint cans, batteries, etc., produced in a society, which do not generally carry any value to the first user(s). Solid wastes, thus, encompass both a heterogeneous mass of wastes from the urban

The right of way is the total land area acquired for the construction of the roadway. Its width should be enough to accommodate all the elements of the roadway cross section, any future widening of the road and any public utility facilities that will be installed along the roadway. Right of way is the area of the road acquired for carriages way + other

Types of GeoTextiles

Woven geotextiles have interlacing filaments or yarns in two perpendicular directions - the longitudinal (or warp) direction and the crosswise (or weft) direction. Woven geotextiles often have greater tensile strength in the warp direction than the weft. Whereas non-woven fabrics are formed by linking filaments using:

Factors Affecting Soil Compaction

As water is added to a soil ( at low moisture content) it becomes easier for the particles to move past one another during the application of the compacting forces. As the soil compacts the voids are reduced and this causes the dry unit weight ( or dry density) to increase. Increased compactive effort enables greater dry unit weights to be achieved
