Besides, density and humidity weight percentage were calculated to be prepared for analyzing by SAS software. In order to determine contribution of citizens in recycling programs, 500 questionnaires were distributed in the four districts and were completed using personal interview. Results showed an average production of 482.93 tons/day waste material having a density of 268.96 kg/m3, a density of 46.76% and 0.96 kg per capita of w aste material in Hamedan city.
