This thesis investigated the municipal solid waste management in GCC states. An investigation of the GCC municipal solid waste legislation's was conducted and compared and some comments and proposed changes were pointed. The main issue of municipal solid waste management in GCC states is the absence of regional co-operation on government level. Therefore recycling and composting that could have a major role in the enhancement of the environment in the GCC states were examined and several actions that could be taken by the GCC government were proposed. The government's role in helping to increase the participation of the public in waste management activities was discussed. A regional recycling scheme was investigated and proposed including some financial aspects. Composting facilities in GCC states were investigated and especially composting as an alternative in Kuwait. Some recommendations on composting were presented. Investigation of construction and demolition waste recycling opportunity in Kuwait was examined.
