The population growth in many urban cities and its activities in developing countries have resulted in an increased solid waste generation rate, an important issue. In the process of solid waste management system; collection and transport play a leading role in waste collection and disposal in which, collection activities contributed the most of total cost that is paid for solid waste collection activities by city‟s citizen and transport activities are required 60-70% of total cost that is the total expenditures spent on the transport, transfer, disposal and treatment of municipal solid waste (MSW) by city authorities. Hence optimizations of routing system, systematization of collection, transport and transfer activities are the important components for an effective MSW management system. This project describes the current problems and the improvement of the waste management activities in a city of Davanagere. An integrated solid waste management assessment model is proposed and used as a decision support tool by municipal solid waste management authorities for daily efficient operations such as collection/transport path management, load balancing within vehicles, fuel consumption management by using GIS application. In addition, a simple optimal routing model is proposed to achieve the minimum cost/distance/time efficient collection and transport path for municipal solid waste management
