Background and Objectives: The quantitative and qualitative data on urban solid waste is one of the essential steps in the scientific management of solid waste. The purpose of this study was to survey the qualitative and quantitative production of solid waste in Mashhad.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, in order to examine the quality of the samples, the separated materials were weighed. For physical analysis, samples were randomly assigned to a volume of 0.125m3 inside the density gauge. Solid wastes  were sorted according to the type and placed in the nylon and weighed. Data were analyzed using Chi-square test.
Results: According to the results,the mean of the solid waste produced in summer was 2190 ± 126.17 and in winter 1890 ± 100.63 tons per day. The highest amount of waste was related to corrosive materials and the minimum amount pertaining to glass.  The highest type of heavy metal in the leach of Mashhad city was Ni (3.1 mg/L).
Conclusion: Due to high amount of garbage materials in solid waste, compost production is recommended to be attended.
