The city of destiny, Visakhapatnam is producing an estimated solid waste of 1300 tonnes of solid waste a day. GVMC, the municipal corporation is doing a lot of hectic work in transporting the solid waste in collection, transporting, dumping ,isolation of species, open burning and incineration in the solid waste disposal plant at Kapuluppada, nearly 15 kilometers away from the town limits. The city is expanding day by day with huge migration of people from rural and urban areas from different parts of the state for livelihood. But, the procedures being adapted today are very cumbersome, leading to a lot smoky and smogy Environment causing a lot of inconvenience for breathing for public particularly in VAMBAY colony and other areas,besides leading to traffic disasters due to poor vision. Also, the increasing Fuel costs, the problems in transporation of waste to and fro, the exhaust gases from vehicles carrying the solid waste etc are the worrying factors.What happened in New Delhi today should be an eye opener for every one. Keeping in view of the SMART CITY status, there is a need to think and implement in a large scale new methods of solid waste disposal and treatment. In this paper we are proposing a novel idea of floating artificial pyramids which gives a smart solution for not only proper treatment but also Energy generation

Keywords: Artificial Pyrramids; solid waste disposal; incineration; Fuel cost; Energy generation.
