Abstract
The main aim of an Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) system is to secure a sustainable, environmentally sound and self-economically supported system. However, the implementation of ISWM requires careful consideration of a number of specific organizational and institutional aspects as well as good waste management practices. The objective of this study is to define and analyze site and regional requirements to implement an effective ISWM system in small Egyptian cities. These requirements have been analyzed with particular reference to Qusier city as a case. The research identities a proposed ISWM system that can help Quseir to solve its municipal solid waste and C&D waste management problems. Further, this research builds upon... (More)

The research identities a proposed ISWM system that can help Quseir to solve its municipal solid waste and C&D waste management problems. Further, this research builds upon Nordic experiences of such systems in the development of an operational model for Quseir and provides guidance for future work for a number of key stakeholders in Egyptian waste management .
