Waste Characterization of Solid Waste

This study method produces waste composition data that can be correlated to specific types of waste generators, such as specific categories of business or industry, multi-family buildings, or single-family residences in specific neighborhoods. Waste samples are obtained at the location where they were generated – e.g., from the dumpsters or disposal

Collection of Data on Solid Wastes

In this section we will present various steps on collecting data, its presentation and information derived from this data. This data is useful in generating comprehensive information on the quantity and type of recyclables and recoverable materials / energy to prioritize the recovery opportunities. The information inferred from the

Guidelines for Site Selection for Landfills for Solid Waste

Decision about design period, it is recommended that neither too long nor too small should be selected. For example, 60 years is considered as too long for landfills, while 10 years as too small. Thirty years design period looks appropriate; however, expert stakeholders may decide with appropriate flexibility.

Sanitary Landfills Vs. Dump Sites

Sanitary landfills are solid waste disposal sites which are properly planned and developed utilizing engineering principles to ensure environmental protection and better quality of life for human being in the surrounding regions; while, dump sites (or dumps) are randomly available places where waste is simply thrown with owners’ permission
