Classification of MSW

Biodegradable waste: 

Food and kitchen waste, green waste, paper (most can be recycled, but some plant materials that are difficult to compost may be excluded.

Recyclable materials: 

Paper, cardboard, glass, bottles, jars, tin cans, aluminum foil, metal, certain plastics, fabrics, clothing, tires, batteries, etc.

Inert waste: 

Construction and demolition waste, soil, rock, debris

Electrical and electronic waste (WEEE):

Appliances, light bulbs, washing machines, TVs, computers, screens, mobile phones, alarm clocks, watches, etc.

Composite waste: 

Waste clothing, Tetra Pak packaging, toys and other waste plastics

Hazardous waste: 

Including most paints, chemicals, tires, batteries, light bulbs, appliances, fluorescent lights, aerosol spray cans, and fertilizers

Disposal Methods of MSW


Landfills are sites dedicated to the deposition and compaction of solid waste. The waste is then covered with soil to reduce odors, prevent the spread of disease, and minimize environmental contamination. Landfills should meet certain design and regulatory requirements to prevent soil, groundwater and air contamination.


Incineration or burning involves the controlled burning of solid waste at high temperatures. This method reduces the volume of waste and produces energy through combustion. Proper air pollution control systems are critical to minimizing the release of harmful substances into the atmosphere.


Recycling involves separating, processing and reusing materials from solid waste. Paper, plastic, glass, metal and certain types of organic waste are typical recyclable materials. This approach reduces the need for raw materials, reduces energy use, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.


Composting means the biological decomposition of organic waste. This method is environmentally friendly and produces valuable soil amendments that can be used in agriculture and landscaping. Composting reduces the amount of waste entering landfills and helps divert organic waste from the waste stream.


Waste-to-Energy methods involve converting solid waste into energy, usually through anaerobic digestion or incineration. These methods generate heat or electricity through the combustion or decomposition of waste. Waste-to-energy facilities can help reduce reliance on fossil fuels and minimize the amount of waste.

Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hazardous waste requires special handling because of the potential harm it can cause to the environment and human health. Treatment methods include physical, chemical or biological processes that neutralize, detoxify or remove harmful components from waste prior to disposal.

Source Reduction

The goal of source reduction is to reduce waste generation at the source. This includes measures such as product redesign, material substitution and promoting practices such as reuse, repair and packaging reduction. Source reduction helps conserve resources and minimizes the need for waste disposal.

Biogas Power Generation

Biogas power generation is an environmentally friendly solid waste treatment method that involves decomposing organic waste in an anaerobic environment to produce methane-rich biogas and nutrient-rich digestate.
