The objective of this study is to assess the solid waste management system in Khartoum locality Bearing in mind that Solid waste , especially municipal solid waste is a growing problem in Khartoum locality due to the rapid increase in the City population and the inadequate waste management system. Different stages of the municipal solid waste system that are currently practiced by the authorities were analyzed and focus was made on the protective measures that are currently applied at both of the Old and the New landfill sites in West Omdurman. No environmental protection measures were found in the Old landfill site, while the new site is properly designed especially with regards to landfill gas extraction and combustion. However the New site does not take into consideration any protective measures against leachate pollution. The study recommended numbers of actions to be taken in order to improve the performance of the solid waste management system in Khartoum locality: Establishment of environmental strategies and policies and enhancement of private sector participation to increase the overall system efficiency and an immediate actions of fencing of the Old site.
