Abstract

Background and Objectives. Investigating the amount and composition of municipal solid waste components, as an essential information, is required to design, operate and optimize the municipal solid waste management systems. The ultimate goal of this research is to explore the quantity change and physical variations of Sareyn municipal solid waste. Materials and Methods: This study was descriptive-cross sectional, conducted. Sampling was simple random and physical analysis was conducted according to the ASTM standard of MSW. Total of 28 samples were taken from the trucks brought to the landfill site. Results: The average amount of MSW production in Sareyn is 19.1 tons each day while the highest amount in summer is 35.1 and the lowest in winter is 10.46. The density of Sareyn MSW in the autumn is in the highest value and in the summer is in the lowest value equal to 386.1 and 349.1 kg / m3 respectively. The putrescible materials; 65.66 percent, have the highest amount, and the rest of the components consisting of plastics, rubbish and trash, paper and paperboard, wood, glass, textiles and metals, respectively. Conclusion: According to the conditions of Sareyn touristic city and in order to provide the required health care, it is necessary to review and plan a proper Municipal Solid Waste Management System, increase the number of collections of MSW during peak periods, locate a new place for landfill, and educate the citizens about the waste reduction and waste separation at the source. © 2019 Widener University School of Civil Engineering.
