Therefore, identifying the indicators and improving the efficiency of the waste management system is very important. In the present study,With a descriptive-analytical approach has been attempted to identify and evaluate the effective indicators in two aspects of production-separation and collecting-transportation for improving waste management system. The statistical population of questions related to citizens, all women in Yazd city and the statistical population is related to experts, experts of waste management, municipal services and environmental organizations. 70 questionnaires were completed by experts and 70 questionnaires were completed by household women.The results show that social awareness has an effect on the waste production in Yazd city, but it has not been effective on waste separation. In addition, the amount of income and the number of family members influenced the amount of waste production in Yazd City. The use of appropriate technology and the use of the private sector have had an impact on performance of system. The frequency and time of waste collection did not affect the collection and transportation dimension. The reason for the lack of impact can be due to the lack of frequency and inappropriate dry waste collection time (one day per week), as well as collecting wet waste as a couple or individual days per month is a reason for citizens' dissatisfaction.
