This paper studies the various factors that manage the suitability of a decentralized solid waste system within Kolhapur city of Maharashtra state in India. The main purpose of decentralization is to create hygienic environment free of garbage by utilizing waste as resource, minimizing of waste disposal, converting biodegradable waste into compost, generation of wealth from waste, to reduced cost required for solid waste management (especially on transportation), to educate the community and spread awareness about their roles and responsibilities about solid waste. The paper also summarizes the major findings of the study and suggests the suitable methods of decentralization techniques in the respective area. this paper refers, two decentralized methods which are best suitable are analyzed. i.e, bio-methanation and vermin-composting. And viability of replacting this decentralized methods at the city level is carried out.
