Abstract: The paper presents a proposal for selecting the appropriate waste treatment method for Misurata, reviewing key criteria for such a decision. Many countries use modern methods of solid waste treatment, which can be transformed from the source of pollution into an economic commodity. Libya continues to suffer from solid waste management processes in terms of aggregation, transport or treatment. This paper deals with an approach in the field of solid waste treatment in terms of the nature of these wastes and their methods of management. It also addresses environmental problems related to the subject of solid waste using different treatment methods. It also reviews some studies on this subject. The study concluded that the environmental standard criteria are the most important when making the decision, followed by the technical criteria. At the level of the proposed technique, the study showed that the anaerobic digestion technique is the most appropriate. For the purpose of selecting the best method for solid waste management, the swing weighting method was developed using Ms-Excel.
Keywords: Solid wastes, technique, environmental standard, Decision criteria, Swing Weighting.
