Background: Based on the economical and environmental concepts, the main purpose of the industrial waste management is reducing the production of these materials which is accessible by developing strategies of reuse, waste recycle and upgrading the technologies. Accurate investigation of the quality and quantity of the industrial waste is the basis of the industrial waste correct management. Thus, according to development of industries and the need of an efficient method based on the region conditions it was decided to collect the basic and technical information.   Methods: In this study, the waste productions in 309 industrial units were assessed according to distribution, type and size of the industrial units in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province within 8 months. Information were Collected through field investigations.   Findings: Based on the findings of this study, the total waste produced in the industrial towns was 1,246 tons per month, which 48.2% is produced by the food industry, 14.9% by the metal industries, 6.7% by the chemical industry, 22% by non-metallic minerals industry, 0.9% by the textile industry, 0.6% by the electrical industries and 6.5% by the cellulose industry. The findings indicated that nearly half of the total industrial wastes produced by a range of biological materials that are biodegradable and discharged without compliance with the environmental regulations that is led to short-term pollution and nuisance in the acceptor environment. Also some parts of the studied waste were recyclable which is considerable from the economical values point of view.   Conclusion: Long-term contaminations will be occurred due to improper layouts of many industries from the geographical point of view. And its health risks and environment pollution are assigned to the societies and surface water. Therefore it’s essential that the industries layouts, particularly those industrial units that produce special waste are constructed more carefully. Also stricter enforcement against the industry is an effective step in reducing their harmful impacts.   Key Words: Solid Waste, Quantity and Quality, Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari Province, Residue Management
