  1. 0 Votes

    Based on where the waste is coming from the presence of materials will differ. These are the four different sources and the most common solid waste materials from them:

    Houses: Appliances, newspapers, clothing, disposable tableware, food packaging, cans, bottles, food scraps, yard trimming.
    Commercial buildings: Corrugated boxes, food wastes, office paper, and disposable tableware.
    Institutions: Office paper, cafeteria and restroom waste, classroom wastes, yard trimmings.
    Industries: Corrugated boxes, lunchroom wastes, and office papers, wood pallets.

    As you can see, there is some overlapping. Office paper, corrugated boxes, and food waste are some of the more prevalent.

    Solid waste in Pakistan is broken down into three subcategories:

    biodegradable – (food waste, animal waste, leaves, grass…)

    non-biodegradable – (fines, rubber, textile waste…)

    recycled materials – (metals, paper, cardboard….)

    As much of the waste is reclaimed as recycled materials, it is difficult to get accurate data regarding the percentage that makes it all the way to the landfill. However, a review and analysis of the Pakistani urban waste removal claims that fines constitute 41% of solid waste, and food waste, the second highest ranks 17%.
