Resumo

Brazil is an example of countries in development that has facing several environmental problems due increasing of population together with rise of residue production. It happens because of a great volume of households wastes deposited into the garbage dumps and no adequate waste management. In some Brazilian cities initiatives for an efficient management could be observed. The Amazon State, in focus, has not enough evolution in this way. Over there is not available data about residues management in this State, except in its capital - Manaus. This work was developed in a small village located in the President Figueiredo City. Balbina Village was selected in order to determinate the physical characterization of the household waste class II and III, as well the feasibility study to recycle part of the generated waste. From May to September, eight household waste samples were carried out to demonstrate the physical characteristics of the residues. The results indicated differences in the humidity and weight of dry residue following the local weather seasons. The final result of 0.270 kg/hab/day was considered under Brazilian's cities household waste generation average. The household solid waste management is feasible mainly for organic matter, plastic, paper and cardboard. This work comes out to suggest one household waste management model based on selective collection, including a solution for organic material, that starts in the waste generation source separation going through recycling process and sanitary landfill construction. Key-words: waste management, selective collection, household waste, recycling.
