A comprehensive evaluation of solid waste management in Kuwait
One of the major problems facing a nation is the need for the proper disposal of the voluminous of solid waste generated every year. Therefore, recent literature on solid waste management in Kuwait has been reviewed and data analysed on the total amount of solid waste generated in Kuwait. In addition, industrial solid waste, construction and demolition waste, and pharmaceutical waste are investigated and discussed. Moreover, the cost of collection and transportation of household waste in Kuwait is also calculated. Factors affecting the important management issues in the operation of Kuwait's solid waste management system are investigated and discussed.
