Abstract

Background: With respect to the ascending rate of urban wastes and its environmental effects, the present study was conducted with the aim of determining the wastes and its recovery rates as well as the cost-effectiveness of the procedure in Kashan in 1999-2000.Materials and Methods: It was a descriptive study. We have divided Kashan to 7 districts and determine the amount of wastes in each district monthly. The wastes' density was calculated and its components including paper, glass, metals, plastic and so on were weighted.Results: During the study period (One year 1999-2000) 29865000kg of wastes were collected in Kashan. The daily and per capita waste rate were 82900kg and 0.412kg, respectively. The amount of waste was higher in spring and lower is summer. The urban waste density was 264 kg/m³. 55.5 of the wastes were recoverable. This would save 2094500 Rials.Conclusion: With respect to the per capita rate of waste in Kashan and the possibility of recovering these wastes, it would be worth investigating in the project of waste recovery in Kashan.
