Municipal Solid Waste Composition

The characteristics of solid waste generated in large mountain cities relates more to levels of development than to altitude. Solid waste produced in mountainous cities in low and middle-income developing countries has a large component of organic waste (Modak, Wilson and Velis, 2015c); eating fresh food generates a large amount of food waste with limited amounts of packaging.
