The quantity of waste generated in Addis Ababa is increasing because of rapid population growth, economic development, urbanization and improving living standards of the citizen. However, in most of the developing countries like Ethiopia, the increasing of solid waste is resulted from rapid urbanization and population booming. This has outpaced the financial and a manpower resouce of municipalities to deal with provision and management of services of solid waste.In most cities and towns of developing world, inappropriate handling and disposal of municipal solid waste is the most visible cause of environmental degradation, i.e., air pollution, soil contamination, surface and ground water pollution.The most fundamental step in waste management is quantifying and qualifying the different types of waste being generated. It is important to have a system for the collection and analysis of basic information about wastes.Among the data needed are: the sources of wastes, the quantities of waste generated, their composition and characteristics, the seasonal variations and future trends of generation.
