Integrated Municipal Solid Waste Management (IMSWM)
Muangklang Municipality has initiated the Integrated Municipal Solid Waste Management (IMSWM) system as a sustainable solution by incorporating effective waste collection and transportation service, a waste sorting facility for recovery of recyclables, an anaerobic digestion facility,a composting facility and raising some farm animals, fed with the collected organic waste. The current rate (in 2012) of solid waste collection is23tonnes/day. The people in the community have taken the initiative to separate a part of the organic ratio at source. In addition, the biggest share of organic waste is generated at the Municipal Market. Approximately, 2tonnes/day of source separated food waste and vegetable waste is collected and transported by light duty trucks. The collected organic waste is used for anaerobic digestion (approximately 200 kg/day), composting (1.5tonnes/day) and as animal feed (300kg/day). The remaining 21tonnes of mix solid waste is collected by compactor trucks. A low-cost, outdoor system of “two conveyor belts” have been set up to separate the recyclables from the collected mixed waste. Approximately, 4tonnes of recyclables are separated from 21tonnes of collected waste. The wastewater drained (approximately 1tonne) during the sorting of waste is collected and used for anaerobic digestion. The remaining mixed waste (16tonnes/day) is transported and disposed of at the sanitary landfill site (without a gas recovery system) which is located 14 km away from the municipality. Start year 2010
