According to projections of the INE for 2017 has a total of 171,254 inhabitants and is distributed in nine areas, in this investigation was taken only zone 2, because it is one of the largest and it is located in the municipal market. The objective of the research was to evaluate the waste and solid waste management generated in zone 2 of the municipality of Chimaltenango, taking into account the following sectors: public roads, homes, municipal market and shops. During the development of the same methodologies were used such as: interviews, tours of the area; having as sample size in homes 242 and 74 in shops. For the calculation of the indicators, waste and solid waste generated during a week were weighed and classified as organic, inorganic, recoverable and non-recoverable inorganic.
