A Study of Waste Management of Households in Ulaanbaatar Based on Questionnaire Surveys

G. Delgermaa and T. Matsumoto
Abstract—As a result of the increasing Mongolian population, municipal solid waste, its kinds, the area affected, and environmental deterioration have also increased. The aim of this paper is to present an analysis and results of surveys and interviews used to gather information on municipal solid waste generation, composition patterns and their distinctive features. Based on the gathered data, the authors analyzed the current municipal waste generation conditions in Ulaanbaatar City, the capital of Mongolia, and identified the recycling management difficulties. The result of the study shows that separating the recyclable garbage before transportation to dumping sites reduces the amount of garbage transported by 30-40%, lowering transportation costs and environmental pollution in Ulaanbaatar City.

Index Terms—Waste management, classification of waste, questionnaire survey, ulaanbaatar.
