Abstract: 

Recycling is one the widely used alternatives in the solid waste management system. For recycling plans, recognizing the quality and the quantity of the solid waste is quite necessary. All over the world, especially in the developed countries, a lot has been done in this regard. But in Iran, no comprehensive survey about the potential of recycling in urban areas has been done.
For the first time, this study was implemented in 2003 for all provinces including Sistan and Baloochestan. Three cities of Zahedan, Iranshahr and Chabahar were chosen for study. Sampling and examinations were done according to the standard methods obtained from governmental agencies and the related literature.
The results show that every person produces 504 g solid waste per day with the moisture and density of 25.5% and 182.8 kg/m3, respectively. Solid waste consists of 53% garbage. C/N ratio, 22, makes it suitable for composting. Other important constituents are plastic and paper with 10.8% and 10.5%, respectively.
