Background: In addition to the various human environmental issues, environmental hazards due to the industrial waste mismanagement are one of the country's major problems. This especially is more important in the provinces such as Bakhtiari province where there have been concentration and diversity of the natural resources and a rapid growth of technology and industry in the recent years. Methods: To evaluate the current status of the industrial waste disposal and improving its management system in the industrial town of Borujen questionnaire method was used that the owners and industry officials were questioned personaly and the responses were recorded and finally the considered industry was visited and the schematic production process were identified. In the questionnaires the operating status, type of the activity, type and amount of the raw materials, type and amount of the products and the wastes produced by each industry were studied. Findings: In average 2200kg of general health waste are produced by the personnel activities in the Industrial town of Borujen per day. In the study performed, considering all the recyclable materials and based on physical composition of the waste found, about 68.6% of the weight of the industrial waste is reduced. But not all the recyclable materials can be retrieved. Therefore, the weight loss reaches to about 61%. Conclusion: Based on field studies in order to assess the possibility to construct industrial recycle units in Borujen, the paper recycling facilities could be used in this industrial town and according to the paper recycling industry in the town, there is a good potential in this case. Installing plastic recycling and processing facilities is not economical. It is also recommended that the Iron waste are gathered in a specific point in the industrial town and sold to the mother industries as raw materials after a specified period.
