Therefore a solid waste audit was conducted to identify what are the major solid wastes, how are they accumulated and which expense they cause to the dairy. A number of steps were followed in audit conduction to full capture the required information According to the research, the major solid wastes identified were the boxes and the packaging materials plus metal losses. The monetary value of the wasted solid wastes was in a range of 5-8 millions /year considering an even production.
