    Abstract :

    Solid waste management is one of the most important challenges in urban areas throughout the world and it is becoming a critical issue in developing countries where a rapid increase in population has been observed. Vijayawada is the biggest city in the district as well as the 3rd biggest city of this state of southern India It is the commercial capital of Andhra Pradesh. Vijayawada is politically active, sociologically dominant, agriculturally rich, and is an industrial transportation hub. The present study about the characteristics and the properties of solid waste in commercial and market area. It is necessary to know the intrinsic qualitative and quantitative characteristics of SW as its increase demand alternatives of handling and treatment. The studies of characterization may include analysis such as: physical and chemical composition, volume and generation that provide information for the planning and management of waste for its beneficial use and final disposal. Therefore, these studies constitute the first step to successfully implementing a comprehensive waste management system The results of the studies of characterization cannot be generalized towards different regions and seasons of the year because there are many variants such as: eating habits, consumption patterns, population composition, season of the year and income, that can cause dramatic changes in the composition and generation of waste.Solid waste management is one of the most important challenges in urban areas throughout the world and it is becoming a critical issue in developing countries where a rapid increase in population has been observed.
