Solid Waste Management must be incorporated into environmental planning. It has profound impact on health and hygiene of the community. Waste is generated from different sources such as industrial, residential and commercial activities in a given area and goes through a process of segregation, treatment and final disposal in the landfill. Waste segregation and management is a scientific process by which we can categorise waste products and garbage on the basis of what we can re-use, recycle, reduce. Garbage collection is the responsibility of the respective municipalities in urban areas. In the present investigation garbage management issues of Curchorem - Cacora Municipal Council were scrutinized. Total garbage collected during the study period in the municipal council was 239 tonnes. Ward number 2 produced maximum garbage i.e., 5.0428 tonnes/day and ward number 8 produced minimum garbage with 1.0285 tonnes/day. It is opined that existing system of segregated garbage collection is satisfactory; however more prompt services are required at public places.
