Abstract: The different sources of municipal solid waste (MSW) generation were investigated in six small Egyptian Cities in Nile Delta region. These sources were households, open areas, workshops as well as administrative, health, educational, tourism and sports institutions. The rate of MSW generation varied from one city to another according to population and standards of living. In general, most of MSW were generated from households and open areas. The percentage of these two sources amounted to be 57.27, 18.15% in Banha City; 45.85, 48.55% in Tala City; 28.23, 48.89% in Santa City ; 63.37, 20.38% in Belkas City ; 36.97, 43.23% in Kafer El-Shaekh City and 38.30, 36.05% in Faraskour City respectively. Results revealed that most of MSW (about 55%) could be biotrasformed to compost, ensilage or biogas. In addition, recyclable items amounted to about 14, 5, 2, 1.5 and 1% as paper, plastics, cloth, glass and metals respectively. In Banha City, the financial revenues from reuse of these items is estimated annually 223000 $. Such revenues might cover the costs of MSW management in Banha City.
