: In today’s world solid waste management is a global environmental issue. In India this issue is not taken seriously. There is a tremendous amount of loss in terms of environmental degradation, health hazards and loss due to direct disposal of waste. There has to be appropriate planning for proper solid waste management by means of analysis of the waste situation of the area. The growth in the urban population and activity has resulted in an increased solid waste generation. In the process of solid waste management, more attention needs to be paid towards collection as it itself requires 60-70% of the total cost. For effective management, the municipal corporation of Indapur has divided the entire region into seventeen wards which are further divided into six health units to collect the solid waste. Two alternate disposal systems are considered. In first case the entire solid waste of the city of Indapur is dumped at one dumping site. In next case there are three sites proposed at different locations in the city Indapur city. A comparison is made considering transportation cost, site maintenance cost, labour cost, and diesel cost. This study would deal with, how Geographical Information System (GIS) can be used as a decision support tool for planning waste management and for route optimization. Hence an attempt is made in this study to second optimum route for solid waste transportation in Indapur city.
