Abstract

Solid waste management is considered one of today’s challenges and its efficient promotion requires knowledge of the nature and composition. Thus, this study aims to determine an average total waste generation, distributed in developed, developing and underdeveloped, including the analysis of linear regression and Pearson’s correlation countries. The methodology is a quantitative approach, based on a literature search. The results reveal that the average generation of organic operates as a determinant of the fraction of municipal waste, but are distinguished as the variable with which it correlates. The average generation of organic waste in developed countries, developing and underdeveloped, respectively, is 34.32, 61.33 and 64.21%. In conclusion that the fraction of the middle generation of organic waste in developing and underdeveloped countries is roughly similar features.
