Municipal solid waste (MSW) is household, commercial, and / or institutional solid waste. They consist of everyday items such as paper, grass clippings, plastic bags, furniture, clothing, bottles, rubber, metals, food waste, paints and batteries. They are not only of domestic origin, but also commercial (offices, retail and wholesale, restaurants), institutional (libraries, schools, hospitals, prisons) and industrial (packaging and administration). Most of them are classified as not dangerous.
As part of their solid waste management plan, almost all countries are promoting source reduction, recycling and composting to reduce landfill disposal. Several countries have also adopted specific measures for the disposal of certain materials: leaves, grass clippings, yard waste, office waste and computer paper, newsprint, cardboard and corrugated cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminum and steel containers are prohibited in disposal plants.
Many plants burn municipal solid waste at high temperatures not only to reduce the volume of waste, but also to generate electricity. While not the greenest strategy for MSW, but it is currently the most economical and environmentally friendly treatment method.
