Mandi District in Himachal Pradesh India is experiencing increased waste generation due to economic growth and the expansion of the Indian Institute of Technology-Mandi campus. This project’s goal was to develop recommendations to improve solid waste management at the IIT-Mandi campus and village of Kataula. Data on local practices, waste composition, and resident preferences were collected using waste audits and interviews. Findings indicated a need for better separation techniques on campus and a waste collection system in Kataula. Improvement guides were developed and delivered to address these concerns.
