This paper brings out the features of systems analysis with reference to the solid waste disposal management problem, illustrating it with an example. Linear programming is used to solve the management problem. The problem considered is to develop a regional disposal system for the solid waste of three cities at minimum cost. For this purpose, a computer program for the linear programming model solution via SIMPLEX method has been developed. It is concluded that these type of models would aid the decision maker to obtain the optimal plan for any environmental management problem.
