    •   Kappad Ward
      A study was conducted in the Kappad ward of Kanjirappally taluk to get a background picture of different aspects of solid waste generation and management practices at household level. Based on the project it was found that Kappad ward produces about 0.66 tonnes of waste per day, in which 84% accounts as bio degradable and rest non biodegradable. Also the total amount of waste generated per person in the ward for low income is 0.44 kg/day, for medium income it is 0.85 kg/day and for high income household it is 0.64 kg/day

    •   Petta Ward
