Basic strategy principles for waste in every city is determined by policy and planning in various management areas such as culture and education, storage system, material transport and disposal and particular cases such as lower production (minimization) and the important issue of (recycling in the production process from the source). This issues needs to be dealt with appropriate technology in all the cities.
