Abstract: quotIn all mega cities and municipal corporations, HCV chassis are used for loading and unloading the containers having size more than 5.5 cubic meters. But for all towns and nagarpalikas, these may not be preferred due to space limitations and narrow size roads. So in the case of towns and nagarpalikas, tractor driven container lifting device may be used, which will lift up to 4.5 cubic meter containers. They can use containers of up to 4 - 4.5 cubic meters capacity, which will make optimum use of the tractors. Even for more space limitations small containers mounted on LCVs chassis can also be used. newlineIt has been observed that mostly all municipal corporations are using 5.5 and 6 cubic meter containers operated by a truck as the main source of waste collection and transportation. But at ULBs, small towns and villages, it is very difficult to operate truck operated containers because of following reasons: newline1) Quantity of Solid waste to be handled is less as compare to Municipal Corporation. newline2) Cost of truck operated container lifting device is also very high. newline3) Narrow size of the roads and space limitations also do not allow using such solid waste handling systems. newlineIn this work, small container having capacity of 4.5 cubic meters is fabricated so that it can be operated by tractor operated container lifting device. The idea was to design and develop new container lifting device that can be used to handle 4.5 cubic meter container which is to be operated by tractor. As tractor is used to operate container lifting device, in the spare time it can be used to operate trolleys, water tanker etc. at the Nagarpalikas. In short, tractor can be used to perform multiple activities at Nagarpalika/ULB level. This combination can be made at less than half of cost in comparison to the truck operated container lifting device. newlineThe main focus of the research work is the design and development of container lifting device that can handle 4.5 cubic meter container with the help of tractor. Work has been carried out for design, failure a
