The solid waste disposal is generally done by using sanitary land fill method. In developing countries open dumping is done. Open dumping is dangerous option due to odour and disperson of waste in the form of particles in the air. Sanitary landfill is relatively safer option. The solid waste buried in the land contaminates groundwater. The bio composting of the waste provides additional benefits like manure for agriculture and reduction in the volume of waste. The other option of treating solid waste is incineration. Incineration has disadvantage of exhaust gases. The hazardous waste poses an inherent danger to personnel or the environment when exposed. Many investigators have carried out research for treatment of hazardous waste treatment. The current review summarizes research and studies on solid wastes with emphasis on hazardous waste.

Key words:Incineration, composting, landfill, Deviation, anaerobic treatment, vermicomposting.
