Municipal waste management in our country in order to control solid waste,especially industrial, toxic and dangerous waste seems an inevitable task.Thousands of tons of waste generated in different parts of the country with itspollution, is a problem that should be placed at the forefront of environmentaland health programs of the country due to population growth and the developmentof industry and technology. Emissions of different wastes that are being addedevery day while causing damage to the original sources (water, soil, air) hasled to encountering large amounts of waste material in the forms of solid,semi-solid, liquid and gas and that means that human beings have made their andother beings' life a hell. The collection, disposal, recycling and solid wastemanagement in Iran is significantly different from other countries in the worldin the type and quality of waste, so using any technology without exact studiesand evaluation in order to understand material and adaptation with localfactors would not have favorable results. On the one hand, existence of organicmaterial and moisture in the household waste, and on the other hand, thedramatic differences in climate and environmental conditions in differentregions of the country with their own unique style and culture, are themselvesreason for rejecting the uncontrolled use of technology dependent on outside.Experience of years of recession in the processing compost and payment ofexpenses for waste collection and disposal indicate the importance of thisissue in the environmental programs in the country. For this reason, and giventhe importance of this issue we will in part address the practical hazards non-normativewaste disposal and its environmental impacts.
