The purpose of this study is to suggest the design parameters, which are applied to the solid waste treatment and management systems in rural area. In order to drive out the parameters, the solid waste production and management systems in rural and urban areas had been surveyed and analyzed, respectively. The comparisons of the analyzed results are also introduced in the paper. The rural areas referred to the survey are grouped in accordance with the industrial activities in those areas. The conclusions of the study are as follows: 1) The solid waste volumes produced per day per capita in rural area are less than those of urban area. For example, the average volume produced in rural area in 1995 is 0.85kg, which is two thirds of those in Seoul area. 2) for the treatment, the country has depended mainly on landfill. On the other hand, the incineration treatment ratio has been in creasing in rural area. 3) The physical and chemical properties of the rural solid waste, according to the analysis, are similar to those of the urban areas, which means the living pattern in those two areas have a little difference.
