The present work is a case study on solid waste collection and management in Academic Complex of Universiti Teknologi Petronas, Tronoh Perak. The implementation of a suitable solid waste management programme with appropriate methods of recycling as an inherent element is important to the alleviation of the problems associated with solid waste generation, handling and disposal and environmental conservation. The amount and types of domestic waste generated, management and processing of the waste generated, identification of existing problems related to the implementation of the recycling programme, formed the basis of this study. Surveys and on-site solid waste analysis were conducted in two different period; (I) Semester-break, (2) Semester-open to gather information on the solid waste collection practice of the university. The analysis was conducted in six related academic building according to different courses programme and in concrete laboratory (Building 13) based on weight-volume analysis method introduced by George Tchobanoglous, 1993.Aesthetically displeasing sites and a lack of public awareness were problems of major concern. The results was analysed and it has been found that paper, plastic and cardboard were dominating solid waste composition. An average of 6.1 kg of waste was disposed everyday in each building and 8.2 tonne of concrete waste has been generated. To cater with the problem faced and issue related to solid waste management in UTP, suggestions and recommendations have been made.
