The municipal solid waste management sector represents a major challenge for developing countries due to significant environmental and socioeconomic issues involving rapid urbanization, inappropriate municipal solid waste management practices, and the existence of the informal waste sector. in these countries, municipal solid waste management systems are often inefficient and operate to low standards (1, 2). Municipal solid waste management is characterized by low collection rates and the lack of appropriate waste treatment and final disposal, contributing not only to global climate change and other critical environmental impacts, but also having negative economic and social effects. Most impacts related to waste management occur during the final disposal phase.
