This study focuses on existing and an improved solid waste management system of Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) area for improving its inhabitants' environmental health. The improved management system shows that energy can be recovered from solid waste. The paper also focuses on the characterisation and composition of municipal solid waste including moisture content and calorific value. The data shows that the moisture content in city waste is significantly higher with the calorific value of 15.51 MJ/kg and recoverable electrical energy is 4.482MWh/day approximately. Furthermore, the paper recommends the appropriate technology for solid waste disposal in the area of RCC to attain its goals.
