This paper contains the various scientific techniques adopted in the municipal solid waste management system to separate the waste plastic from municipal solid waste. The municipal solid waste contains variety and mixture of wastes including organic and inorganic wastes, biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes, animal waste, street waste, hazardous waste, etc. There is a need to treat these wastes to reduce their impact on the environment and human beings.
