Low waste collection efficiency and financial constraints along with poor planning and lack of study on changing complexities of municipal waste lead to worsening of municipal solid waste related problem, which results in masking the goal of sustainable management of municipal solid waste (MSW). An integrated planning and capacity building is required backed by financial support to control the situation. Life cycle assessment, categorisation, recycling and reduction in all types of wastes and proper landfilling are required.
