1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background and Motivation Solid waste management is the one of the important and major problem faced by today’s world. With the increase in commercial, residential and infrastructure development due to the population growth, it has lead to negative impact on the environment.. In developing countries like India, Solid waste management is considered as one of the most tedious environmental problems faced by municipal authorities . Rapid urbanization along with increasing industrial, economic and commercial development, have given rise to an increased generation of various types of waste.
The worldwide market size of performance sportswear is currently estimated at US $ 6.40 billion, which is up 19.4% over the last four years, and is expected to grow a further 18.75% to US $ 7.6 billion by 2014. According to one of the reports, sports apparel will outperform all sportswear by a factor of two, raising the US $ money value of performance sportswear from US $ 5.89 billion to US $ 7.20 billion. Its share of total active sportswear will rise from 10.71% to
Surprisingly, this impact is not anticipated to decline in coming years since the annual growth rate of this waste is 7.1 percent. In addition, this increases pollution as well as affecting the crop
Outsourcing in Logistics. The global use and importance of logistics outsourcing has increased dramatically in recent decades and will continue to do so. Indeed, a recent study shows that of the total logistics costs in 2005, 57% in Western Europe and 44% in the US headed for logistics outsourcing. For these data, we expect to see growth rates of 18% in Western Europe and 16% in the US in the near future (2008-2010).

The sending regions with the largest increases from 2010 to 2013 were South Asia (up 373,000, 16 percent growth); East Asia (up 365,000, 5 percent growth); the Caribbean (up 223,000, 6 percent
Opponents claim that landfilling is one of the most widely used method for the disposal of e-waste rather than recycling. In the US, an estimated 70% of heavy metal in landfills come from discarded electronics. In this technique, soil is evacuated from the trenches that are made on flat surfaces and waste materials are buried into it, which is covered by a thick layer of soil. Modern technologies has created an updated, secure landfills with various facilities like impervious liner made of plastic or clay, leachate collection basin that collects and transfer the leachate to water treatment plants, etc. However, such an argument completely ignores the fact that the disposal of e-waste into the landfills leads to various heath issues.
Chapter 2 Literature Review 2.1 Waste management in developing countries: The Integrated Sustainable Solid Waste Management (ISWM) Cities and towns in developing countries have for several decades been faced with a challenge of handling and managing solid waste adequately. The main reasons associated with these challenges have been mentioned as rapid urbanisation and growing populations in towns and cities which consequently led to increased generation of waste (Guerrero et al, 2013). The management of this solid waste by municipalities grew as a budget burden for each municipality due to the associated high management costs, lack of understanding of the diverse factors that affect waste management at different stages and the linkages that
