Waste management requires a reliable waste generation, and the generation of waste and the amount of waste estimated based on facts are factors that can influence it. Ways to reduce environmental impacts on waste management include planned prevention by processing methods based on waste features that are processed at designated locations. Factors such as behavior, culture, energy sources, economic development and climate are impacts on the composition of waste. The composition is very influential on the need for collecting a lot of waste or less from the collection and disposition of waste. The purpose of this study is to analyze and find the main obstacles regarding the composition of waste with warm climate conditions. The results of this study allow the main contents of planned waste management to be established. This also includes advice to all residents about how to minimize waste, a recycling scheme that is expanded on the roadside and relationships with stakeholders.
