The discharge process of the wastes collected. Consequently, these trends play an important role in determining the nature of the solid waste management and decision making process, including its various dimensions and levels. This research include an analytical study for the decision making matrix of Solid Waste Management(SWM) in different dimensions and levels .The dimensions consist of social ,economic ,technological ,political ,and administrative. The levels contain household ,neighborhood, city, and nation. Three cities (Hilla,Najaf,and Kerbala) had been taken as case studies for analyzing these dimensions and levels in decision making of solid waste management. where it is through the use of audit fieldwork and the use of experts in the field of jurisdiction. After studying the issues in these three cities and operations of waste minimization, waste recycling and waste disposal, so as to indicate defect and gaps in the nature of the decisions and actions existing in the solid waste management of these cities at both the dimensions( social, technological, economic, political, and management), or in terms of levels ( family, residential neighbored, city, nation) of these decisions and actions.
