The production rate per one day was 75,096T/D. The production rates per one person per one day was 1.8kg/c.d which was reduced by 18.6% in 1992. The amount of waste treated by landfill was 66,965T/D or 89/1%, that by incineration was 1,132T/D or 1.5%, and that by recycling was 5,912T/D or 7.9%. The production rates and states of treatment, landfill areas, treatment schedule and components of the municipal solid wastes of three cities of Pusan, Daejeon and Chungju are investigated. Physical components were as follows; paper 18.2%, vinyl and plastics 14.1%, rubber and leather 1.1%, textile 2.8%, wood 1.8%, food waste 48.7%, metals 3.9%, glass 7.4%, and others 2.0%. Moisture contents, combustible components and ignition ashes were investigated 46.0%, 39.4%, and 14.6%, respectively. Heating values were as follows ; high heating values 5,063kcal/kg, low heating values 2,129kcal/kg. For chemical components were as follows ; carbon 46.3%, hydrogen 6.6%, oxygen 43.2%, nitrogen 1.5%, sulfur 0.2%, and chlorine 2.2%. The problems of reuse of the wastes and collection of the classified garbage wastes are analyzed and thier solutions are suggested. (author). refs., figs., tabs.
