The quantity of solid waste (SW) is increasing rapidly in Albania during this transition period from 2000 up to now and especially municipality solid waste (MSW). While the problem related to industrial solid waste is result of the past, because nowadays the industrial production represents a low weight in gross domestic production. MSW generation in 2010 has been nearly twice more compared with 2000. In this total amount of MSW, the ones of capital city represent a high weight and consequently more problems to solve facing small economic opportunities. SW management currently is being supported by a full legal basis, with priority is being given to recycling of SW different factions, but the economic and social conditions are not yet in that level for a SW integrated management system. This paper introduces the actual situation of SW in our country and some suggestions to improve their management.
